Juaréz Hnos Hierro Forjado shop in La Antigua Guatemala is the oldest forged metal shop in the American Continent according to the owner. He recounted the people who had visited his shop from all over the continent and Europe because of the quality and old-time processes they use in his shop. “This is the real and original thing,” said he as he pointed to the different articles in his shop.
To be honest, before moving to Antigua, I did not have an appreciation for this time-tested fine craftsmanship. How about you, do you like forged metal items?
