Rocca di Perty quarries
Shafts of light on the walls of a big quarry of Finale stone
On the western side of Rocca di Perti, in a dominating position over the Pora valley, there are the tall walls of the Rocca di Perti quarry. One of the most prestigious types of pinkish coloured Finale stone was extracted from here.
The quarry, active until the 1980s, presents impressive vertical walls that are now smooth due to the mechanical cutting of the stone. The sun plays visual games of light on the walls that seem to make works of contemporary art.
