The marriage of two natural elements, such as stone and water, is a guaranteed success in any landscaping project.
A combination of natural elegance, the fruit of nature. We are aware of this, but also thanks to the contribution of ideas from our professional and private customers, Naturpiedra has provided many solutions with natural stone for humid environments. Water brings out the natural beauty of the stone even more by multiplying its shades.
Our knowledge of natural stone, and the fact of having our own quarries and factory equipped with various machines, together with the know-how of our staff, has allowed us to offer modern solutions for this type of design, as we can show you with these examples presented today.
Since Antiquity, the perfect synergy between these elements, so vital for humanity, has been present in all types of constructions. Many examples where stone and water combine perfectly, satisfying the most essential needs, as well as the most playful or dedicated to the pleasure of the senses.
Within our National Heritage we can find:
Aqueducts, like the famous aqueduct of Segovia, which brought water to the city, solving the unevenness with its imposing arcades of large blocks of granite.
Many thermal baths of Roman origin, dedicated to the hygiene and pleasure of these inhabitants.
Fountains too, like those in the gardens of the royal site of San Ildefonso in La Granja, Segovia. Or the Generalife gardens at the Alhambra in Granada.
Although these are the most outstanding monuments, in every city or town we find fountains, cisterns, bridges and a long list of architectural works in which water and stone are the protagonists.
In all humility, all these examples inspire us to be able to satisfy our customers with all kinds of solutions and special pieces, for a perfect union of our natural stones with water.
