It really shows the beauty and the hardships of marble quarries. The sculptures, views, small bedroom where the cavatori lived-all excellent.

The museum is very nice. There is a lot of marble and marble scolptures. There you can see a lot of tools for digging marble. There is also a small shop with home made marble products.

Fascinating how difficult life was for the Cavatori, well shown in statues, work tools, with the breathtaking view of the working marble quarries/ cave. Wonderful!
