One of the most luxurious and practical ways of facing an architectural structure, of course, is the travertine finish. Its rich appearance, many types of processing and strength characteristics make it one of the most popular materials around the world. The antiquity and grace of this stone allows you to give any structure a grandiose appearance.
Travertine is a natural stone whose formation originates from the transition from limestone to marble. Due to this, travertine has properties inherent in both limestone and marble. This material has rich colors from beige to brown. Travertine is a rock with special strength and durability capable of serving for centuries. In confirmation of this, many historical buildings can be listed, but the Colosseum is the most popular.
