Maybe due to the essence of the areas of excavated
stone a place where, according to some legends, the myth of Crete was born or
to the shape of the quarries where the stone was
extracted by hand, which is like a labyrinth indeed, the visitor to
S´Hostal quarries has the impression of entering a real labyrinth; this can be
experienced as a relaxed walk around gardens or a
genuine initiation journey whose Ariadne´s thread is the language of the stone
, whose verbs are declined in many different ways: carved, scraped, scratched,
with holes, erect.... This labyrinth-shaped space
governs and pervades the work of Líthica at S´Hostal, where all
the different work in the stone and the gardens has been undertaken with the aim of
incorporating and highlighting this unique essence and shape of the quarries.
The Great labyrinth project
The Great labyrinth project consists of four
labyrinths, each of them with a different essence, partially developed, almost utopic,
which is on hold right now but will be developed at some point in the future..
