Right at the feet of the Marble Mountains, in fact, there are marble factories và laboratories dealing with the realization of sculptures: this has been one of the most profitable traditional jobs in Da-Nang for about 400 years. Here, some time ago, artisans would create religious, artistic sculptures & also small souvenirs, tools for domestic use, & pieces of jewelry, using the marble extracted from the mountains (which is also where the gems decorating Ho bỏ ra Minh’s mausoleum come from); today, instead, the extraction of marble from the famous peaks is prohibited by law, and marble is imported from the surrounding areas.


The Marble Mountains can be found about 25 km away from Hoi An, on the road to Da-Nang. Located in a sacred & mystic place, these mountains are five promontories that took shape in a naturally marble-rich area: each mountain is the symbol of one of the five natural elements – earth, water, fire, metal, và wood – after which it takes its name: Thuy Son (water), Moc Son (fire), Hoa Son (wood), Kim Son (metal) e Tho Son (earth). Along the path that leads uphill, towards the peak of each mountain, it is possible khổng lồ admire & explore natural caves, gorges, small valleys, và religious sanctuaries where to meditate and practice yoga, often crossing paths with monks kneeled in the pavilions, praying, and huge marble statues representing Buddha, hidden in little ravines in the rocks.

Surrounding the five mountains, what stands out is the perfectly organized & picturesque exposition of marble sculptures, which inevitably attract visitors by showing them artifacts of different shapes and dimensions: Buddha, Bodhisattva, and Madonnas of all kinds which, when exploring the various regions of Vietnam & looking up towards the roofs of the houses, will not be hard khổng lồ find on the terraces, as well. As of today, the intense manufacturing of items và statues that characterizes the area, as mentioned above, differently from a few years ago, doesn’t depend on the marble extracted from the five mountains anymore, which would otherwise be irreversibly spoiled và would have lost the aura of magic và mystery they are famous for: now, marble for the construction of souvenirs và sculptures is imported more & more significantly from China.
