Authentic works of art made in the forge by artist Ángel Fernández López.

Located in the centre of La Caridad, this private collection housed in the family home of Ángel Fernández López comprises works by this artist born in 1920. The collection consists of several pieces, such as a set of chairs and table, in iron and glass (1980), a tree with a snake, in iron (1972), an iron, marble and glass sideboard (1973), an Asturian hórreo (raised granary-cum-storehouse) done in iron (1972), an iron corn cob (1973), and several iron lamps (1980).

All were hand-crafted in his forge. There, he heated the iron and then used a hammer on the iron anvil to shape them until achieving authentic works of art.
