Campanedda Stone
The construction stone used in Salemi, known as Campanedda, is a highly cemented sandstone almost completely without veins or discontinuous elements, of a natural warm uniform colour which goes from light yellow to pink, which assumes a more intense golden pigmentation after being exposed to the sun and atmospheric agents. It was largely used for supporting walls and appreciated above all for structures which required particularly refined techniques like doorways, corners, friezes and coats of arms.
