Neat look John, boy, that one roof is almost flat and they used slate on it. It looks like pretty much all of their slate is clear black. No colors there.

This is a quarry that supposedly produces 6 times the entire American market.

Here is an underground slate mine. We drove close to a mile inside the mine.

Neat look. there is just so much you can do with slate, and it is all "correct!" Many styles, many methods and one objective. a permanent roof and keeping out the water and snow. Perfect!

Hi
Of course, all the slates are Spanish. These villages are in slate-rich areas, in which it has been used for centuries.
Just take a look to two other roofs, from the same village (Entoma). These are two good examples of "rustic slating", one new and one old.

Victor, How old are they? Is that all Spanish slate? I have to wonder if the old picture on the lower right leaks. It sure looks rough.

Hello
Here are some images of slate roofs from Spain. The first two correspond to a village in the middle of nowhere in Galicia, NW Spain. The others two were taken at the Spanish Pyrenees.
Hope you like them!
