And its first use was in terraces, hence its name from Latin.
It is also a very hard and resistant material very easy to maintain since it does not require special care and has a price that makes it very advantageous compared to materials such as marble that are much more expensive. That meant that its use was extended in public buildings to lower costs.

Before the most used were the white, gray or earth tones; But today we are surprised with shades ranging from reds to blues, passing through yellows … There is a lot to choose from!
