    Description

    Would you like to know how this amazing raw material is created and how our ancestors managed to extract it from the mountains and manipulate it to create masterpieces? In this hands-on experience, you will be taken outside a village in the heart of Naxos and visit an imposing marble quarry.

    Enjoy a tour of the quarry by one of the owners and take the opportunity to discuss ancient and modern methods of mining, quality standards and so much more.

    Your next stop will be further up on the mountains at the village of Apiranthos, also known as "the marble village": the ideal setting to enjoy a full lunch in a family tavern and also to marvel at how the people of Naxos managed to build an entire village out of their most beloved material.

    After you have learned every single theory aspect, you will attend a 2-hour marble sculpting workshop, where a professional marble sculptor will welcome you to their working space and teach you how to create works of art with this amazing material. By the time you leave, you will have carved your personal souvenir to take home with you, a masterpiece of your own.
