The majority of local arts and crafts are related to the Easter week celebrations: the FACES of the “biblical gures” used in the procession and their accessories, SUCH as INSIGNIA, SHIELDS, CROWNS, HELMETS, SWORDS and SCEPTRES are usually made of gilded metal or silver plate. Many local craftsmen work with wood making carvings, processional thrones and restoring antique furniture. The Ortega family, which has won several national prizes, is involved in CERAMICS, and is dedicated to the manufacture of traditional pieces and their own designs.
