Gold Filigrana Workshop

Gold. Gold. Gold. For a country with strong ties to the Americas became a natural commodity to hold. Traditional families in the north have, for centuries,   passed on ornamental gold jewellery created by local artisans called “filigrana”, from generation to generation, and celebrate this custom and art-form in a beautiful festival in the summer where all women “minhotas”  dress up in the regional attire and put on all of their gold “filigrana” at once. Come visit a filigrana artisan atelier and see how this intricate art form is created, patiently, manually and most importantly, with love.
