Macael, the Marble Town
Apr 2019 • Couples
Macael is a surprising little town, not only does it have the largest mortar and pestle in the world but also an exact replica of the fountain of the Lions - El Patio de Los Leones from the Alhambra.

There is marble everywhere from the nearby quarry pavings, benches, sculptures, window frames, plant pots - lovely spot.
