About the Portuguese Stone

The Portuguese Stone, also known as Portuguese mosaic, is a rustic and irregular surface, much used in civil construction in external areas due to its rigidity and resistance, but also often found in interior environments as a decoration and highlight element, and can be applied in floors and walls.

Origin of the Portuguese Stone
As the name suggests, the Portuguese Stone also known as Portuguese cobblestone or Portuguese mosaic, had its origin in Portugal in the mid-nineteenth century and joined the paving of sidewalks and public spaces, especially in countries that have Portuguese as their language.

The Portuguese Stone, composed of limestone and basalt, was widely used in the landscaping of Brazilian cities in the twentieth century, due to its great flexibility of assembly. With prominence in famous projects such as the boardwalk of Copacabana Beach (by Roberto Burle Marx) and in the spaces of the old Central Avenue, both in Rio de Janeiro.

How to Apply the Portuguese Stone

In architectural projects, the Portuguese Calçada is able to create an infinite number of possibilities and to form several decorative models by the contrast between the stones of different colors. In this sense, the stone pavements of Lisbon are true works of art to be trampled.
In addition to the famous public sidewalks and parks of large cities, the Portuguese pavement flooring is also used in private and internal environments. Whether on a common driveway or in a pool area for example. The stones are non-slip, have a good life and leave the environment with a more sophisticated appearance.

Maintenance and Care
It is a great choice due to its versatility and simple maintenance. The ideal is to carry out periodic cleaning with jet washers and neutral soap to avoid the accumulation of dirt between the stones.
