Leading up to the main building is a evergreen tree-lined walkway. Some refer to this area as the “cedar allee.” Others refer to it as a promenade or arcade. These cypress trees form an arched ceiling for the main front pathway, and many consider it to be an ideal landscape of peace and contentment. This single feature makes the grounds a perfect location for a festival.
The beautiful tree-lined entrance offers a glimpse of what visitors can expect – quiet, pastoral surroundings leading up to the Beaux Arts structure. The entrance and grounds of the historic Candoro Marble Company have a palace-like atmosphere that makes visitors feel as if they have wandered onto a grand estate.
The cedar allee guides visitors to the main entrance of the historic Candoro Marble building, which is the cornerstone of the Vestal community of Knoxville, TN. The cedars provide just the right amount of shade for Candoro Marble’s annual fundraiser known as “VESTIVAL”
