Re: What Kind of Stone Is This?
I showed the photo around work (again, remember that it's rotated):

A co-worker suggested travertine, which is a form of limestone. Travertine is a very common building material. The difference is that travertine is formed from mineral springs, whereas our guide in Cadiz said it was sea-floor depositations. Of course, she could have been mistaken.

This is very likely what I saw.

Shameless plug of my radio show - Underway now
