'Gallaecia Petrea' constitutes a journey through the presence of stone in Galician culture, from the earliest times down to the present day; from the moment it became the basic element that shaped the landscape to its more recent uses in forms of cultural expression. It provides an insight into the relationships between territory and stone, generating a debate on one of the hallmarks of Galician culture, the Galician landscape and the Galician way of life, addressing the use of stone as both building material and artistic medium, explaining not only the reasons why it is used, but also the techniques used to work it and the various aesthetic languages employed. It features some of the most significant examples of such uses, both utilitarian or artistic, in varying kinds of stone, yet stems from a geological analysis of the territory to explain the choice of a specific material in each case.
