A quarry is a type of open pit mining from which rocks or minerals are mined. Quarries are used to extract building materials, such as decorative stones. Quarries are generally shallower than other types of open pit mines.

The visual impact of quarries is usually large. In other cases, such as the image of the quarry of Serra dos Candeeiros near Rio Maior goes unnoticed, since it is still surrounded by mountains. Dust caused by stone extraction can be significant as can soil erosion.

Sometimes the granite rock explored presents in balls of great size, occurring on the surface of the massif. It is possible to obtain large blocks, followed by sawing for further commercialization.
