    Bernardos' Slate

    The slate from the village of Bernardos (Spain) is so unique in terms of its quartz content that is known as Phyllite. At MyS, we have been extracting this noble stone from our own quarries for more than 50 years, continuing a tradition that dates back from 1559. The Bernardos' Phyllite has been employed for centuries in historic buildings that form now part of the heritage in countries like UK, Spain and France. Today, this stone is employed for roofing, cladding and flooring in a wide variety of finishings with impressive results.

    Natural texture

    We are a modern yet experienced company dedicated for more than 50 years to the extraction, manufacturing, design and construction of buildings in natural stone. Our family-run company owns different quarries in the region of Bernardos, internationally renowned for its grey slate. The history of the Bernardos' slate dates back from 1559, when the king Felipe II ordered his royal architect, Gaspar de la Vega, the utilisation of slate in heritage landmarks such as the palace of Valsain and the Alcazar of Segovia. Slate experts across Europe came to Spain and found in Bernardos a unique stone of great quality, toughness and a characteristic plumb-like color and quartz waves. Since then, the Bernardos' slate became indispensable in many of the most beautiful examples of the Spanish architecture.

We contribute to the sustainable development of the region and incorporating the latest technology to each of the stones that go out from our quarries.

    The slate in our quarries is extracted by cutting with diamond wires and not with dinamite as it was traditional in the area. This pioneering technique is at the same time respectful with the enviroment and more sustainable as it creates regular working platforms from which large stone blocks can be extracted. The picture shows one of our slate quarries in Bernardos.
