I found this former marble quarry in my search for more abandoned places via Google Earth.​

The quarry already existed in the 13th century. In the 14th to more intensive use in the 17th century, the marble was used for monasteries.​

That's an interesting place. I like the lines and the way you have captured the light

That's really cool Andy. I've never explored a marble quarry
