Forja ferros d'art cadenas
Time Out says
Forja Carreras continues the tradition of the artisanal forge to which are added new technologies and materials such as stainless steel, a place worth visiting
Forges are mythological spaces that evoke certain ideas and images that we have embedded in us, culturally speaking, about brute force, sweat, fire and hell. The results (and how could it be otherwise) can also have a magic aspect, as in the case of the pieces from the Forja Carrera in Girona. Architect Rafael Masó, who spread modernisme around the city, a very organic and personal kind of modernisme, contracted Nonito Cadenas to make iron railings and fixtures for his buildings. Nowadays the great-grandson of Cadenas, Sergi, follows in the family tradition of the traditional forge adding new technologies and materials such as stainless steel. His furniture and structures made for both interiors and exteriors are unique artifacts that that could have been made by the hand by Vulcan himself. Don't miss visiting the shop, the iron work on the façade of the premises on Av. Sant Francesc alone is worth seeing.
