I'm in Spain ... ceiling with water damage .. need to repair ceiling tiles & plaster after fixing leak .. I'm worried these ceiling tiles may be asbestos insulation tiles .. this extension was done in the mid 70-80 's in Spain .

Looks like clay to me...same style as the bricks they use in that part of the world.

If you mean the reddish terracotta then I'd be amazed.
It looks as if there was/is a more fibrous material which was then plastered?
The fibrous stuff could be? Or it could just be a softboard type thing?

Thanks for the replies. The photos lost some quality . The yellow & flaking stuff is paint . Under the paint there is a white ceiling board .. between the ceiling board and the red terracotta they used some sort of plaster type stuff ..thing is it is white in some places - grey in others . The water damage made it "bubble" which in turn makes it look a little grey sand & cement mix ..there aren't much that's visually identifiable as fibrous .. more like gritty or sandy. Well I guess I had better get a sample tested. Or just paw off the job onto a tradesman and let them decide if it looks suspicious.
