THE Macael city council has put forward plans in the hopes to be recognised as a world heritage site by UNESCO.

The natural stonework of Macael is world renowned. Examples such as those at the Alhambra, the Generalife and the Royal Palace in Madrid have been marvelled at by countless people from around the world. The works are also integral to the history of Spain.

Raúl Martínez, mayor, said, ”At Macael we have enormous potential to achieve this goal. It will give great visibility and recognition to the work of all our ancestors and the work that is done today. It is going to give that relevance to the stonework and stonemasons of Macael, which are our roots and our spirit.”
