Merchants and their Stores


Emblematic stores selling Compostelan Silversmithing

Found in historical buildings next to the Cathedral and iconic streets like Platerías, Azabachería, Rúa Nova and Rúa Villar, these local shops have played a crucial role in the marketing and survival of Compostelan silversmithing.

Some stores are old workshops while others are more modern alternatives. They all value the products and jewelry of traditional masters, while offering new designers the chance to showcase their work.

Despite the sector being overwhelmed with cheaply manufactured, low-quality industrial copies, they vigorously defend the Authentic Ancestral Silversmithing from Santiago de Compostela and fight tooth and nail for its recognition. Their job is to teach the public how to identify, appreciate and differentiate authentic Compostelan creations.
