Exporting Marble

Marble mined and finished by Bloco B Lda.  in Vila Vicosa, Portugal, is exported to Saudi Arabia and almost all the marble this year is headed for abroad.

Between the office and the factory, blocks of white marble line up under the sun before being processed. Some of the material will be used to refurbish a luxury hotel in Milan.
