The petrographical characteristics of the principal types of calcareous materials used in the construction of the Seville Cathedral, as well as some significant physical and deformational properties are presented. Artificial ageing tests were also carried out for evaluating the weatherability of those stones, both from the monument and from the corresponding quarries.
