Wrought iron work

Metal crafts, and especially iron forging and copper and brass work have given Andalucia a special identity. Lucena, in the province of Cordoba, is Spain's centre for metal workers, and Seville is also highly regarded for its creative ironwork.

The art of iron forging is still very much alive in Andalucia, with a varied range of decorative locks, grills for doors and windows, balconies, wall lamps, gates, and an endless variety of objects crafted in brass, tin, copper and bronze, such as umbrella stands and other household objects.

In Granada, metalwork techniques hark back to the Moorish period, as seen in the work of the city's boilermakers, blacksmiths and especially tinsmiths, who create unusual and highly decorative lamps.
