// Filigree Route -The Filigree

Gondomar is a territory known for Jewelry, much of his story is a relationship established between Man-workshop-gold.

The presence of mining of gold comes from pre-Roman peoples, intensifying during the Roman presence with the exploitation of mines scattered in the mountains of sinks and Banjas. From the second half of the 18th century, Gondomar begins to assert itself as one of the most important and prolific centers of Portuguese goldsmithery.

The Filigree is the privileged field on Jewellery, artisanal production gondomarense is practiced in small workshops, family-oriented, using techniques passed down from one generation to the next.

This legacy continues to be in force with force in the Municipality, for example, in the ranking of the eight largest Portuguese companies of jewellery and Goldsmith’s five are gondomarenses. The Jewelry in Gondomar notes about of 60 of the national production.
