Dry-stone wall experts heading to Mallorca for conference ahead of UNESCO bid

Dry Stone Walling

MALLORCA will host a major international conference on traditional dry-stone building ahead of a UNESCO World Heritage bid.

CRAFT: Not for dry-stone cowboys

Experts in the technique will gather in Palma for the workshop from October 26-29.

A joint bid by European countries, including Spain, has been launched to have the technique recognised.

Dry-stone building has continued in Mallorca into the 21st century, with a Wallers School teaching new generations of craftsmen the ancient building skill.
