The Moleanos limestone and its close alternatives are mostly extracted in a limited area, which is located at the heart of the main limestone extraction center in Portugal: the Serra D´Aire e Candeeiros.
The Moleanos limestone is a major natural stone from Portugal that has considerable demand all over the world. It is one of the major limestones in the market that has been extracted in Portugal for several years now. Due to large demand, several alternative variations of the Moleanos showed in the market (as some that we present here). Today the Moleanos and its main alternatives are extracted in a limited area located in the Serra D´Aire e Candeeiros, mostly around two major extraction areas as shown below.
This area around the town of Moleanos is where the Moleanos limestone quarries are located. The quarries are just on the outskirts of the town.
