It is easy to explain because each village had a forge, the answer is that Quiroga had a lot of converted iron in these ”industries”.

The room dedicated to Agapito Rodriguez Vila reconstructs a traditional forge, inside can be seen acomplete collection of tools from blacksmiths of Quiroga’s villages and other elements.[/vc_column_text][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”231,232,233,234,235″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
