THE GRATINGS OF THE CHAPEL OF THE RELICS IN THEIR PLACE AND AS NEW

These days and taking advantage of the restoration works of the church, the seventeenth-century grille of the Chapel of the Relics has been restored. This grille made of forging and with the different pieces joined only by riveting, without any welding, was quite deteriorated because the setting of the bars that made it up had given way, the bars were off the hook and in serious danger of dismantling due to lack of the required solidity. in such unions.

The company Forja de Chago, specialized in the restoration of ancient iron elements, -they have just restored all the bars of the Santiago Cathedral-, was the company appointed to restore consistency and functionality to our bars, something that has been done with the same old techniques, without the use of any modern welding.

It has been discovered that in the past the bars had golden elements, due to the remains of gold and polychrome.

They have even restored the old lock, the original had not worked for more than a century, making new keys, those of half a kilo in pure wrought iron.

With some photos we illustrate the renovation of the fence, which has been like new.
