S’hostal labyrinth

Whether it is the very essence of these excavated stone areas or whether it is the maze-like structure of the quarries hewn by hand (legend has it the Cretan myth originated in a quarry), a visit to s’Hostal Quarries is like walking in a maze: it is a delightful walk through gardens, or it could be seen as a path of initiation.


The common ground, or Ariadne’s thread, of the labyrinth is the language of the stone, handled in a thousand different ways: stones have been carved, chiselled, perforated, and erected. The multidirectional nature of the place has permeated Líthica’s activity in s’Hostal emphasising the very essence of the quarries.
