The mementos of the life of a great iron industrialist.

The house where Antonio Raimundo Ibáñez, Marquis of Sargadelos (1749-1809), was born now houses an exhibition on the life and work of this merchant, industrialist and Enlightenment figure who, in the late 18th century, built one of the first cast iron foundries and chinaware factories in Spain in Sargadelos (Cervo, Lugo).

The exhibition highlights the links of this figure with his homeland, where a major wrought iron industry has existed since long ago, and seeks to raise awareness among the population regarding the conservation of local cultural heritage.

The museum is also home to the Friends of Raimundo Ibáñez Association. The intention of those responsible for the creation of this museum is to give the Marquis of Sargadelos Birthplace a life of its own, with the recovery and practice of ethnological traditions such as debate circles, uses, customs, etc.

It is located in a 18th-century house whose renovation was based on the concepts of that era. It has a kitchen, bread oven, living room, balconies, hórreo (raised granary-cum-storehouse), forge, cellar, laundry room, yard and exhibit room, in addition to a toilet and spinning devices.
