The Forge Fair
If you have ever strolled through Alpens, you will have seen its ironwork creations. Every two years, the town dedicates a fair to this activity.
The art of forging ironwork is deeply rooted in Alpens. Despite the appearance of other materials that have made the forger and blacksmith's work redundant, it can still be found in this town of Osona. Statues, railings, grills, door knockers, lamps and so on remind us of the past of a town of forges. Once every two years, the Forge Fair brings together more than 100 artisans, who show you that the trade is still very much alive.
