Contrary to what many think, travertine is actually one of the stronger stones around. Although it’s porous, travertine’s compression rate is much higher than that of concrete.

While porosity helps in making travertine slip-resistant, tumbled finish used in travertine pavers ensures that they are mild to your bare feet.
