The goal of the Shades of Marble Route is to promote the Industrial and Cultural heritage of Alentejo by showcasing the marble estate of the Estremoz Anticline. The main goal of the Shades of Marble Route is to promote this crucial industrial activity as well as the land, which hosts it. We created different tours, fitting different tastes and interests that carry the visitors into a fascinating and unforgettable trip of the “strange world” of Alentejo marble.
The origin of this Route
The Shades of Marble Route is a project by Turismo do Alentejo, a Regional Tourism Body managed by Spira – revitalização patrimonial lda, a company registered with the National Tourism Registry under number 69/2011 issued by Turismo de Portugal, I.P.
The Route is based on a number of partnerships with local commercial and industrial bodies, which helps the sustainable development of the municipalities it spans. All those taking the Shades of Marble Route contribute directly to maintaining and developing these unique local resources.
Setting up the project for the Shades of Marble Route was only possible due to a team including the: Universidade de Évora (scientific content); Gravity / Inflyence (image and communication); the cooperation of the 5 municipalities involved under the general coordination of Spira. The whole project was co-financed by Inalentejo.
