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

Located in the centre of  A Caridá, 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.
