The cultural richness of Priego is seen too in the quality of its crafts.
With an ancient tradition going back centuries, craft workshops are dedicated to wood carving whose tasks of restoration, the making of religious images and gilding is in demand all over Andalucía.
The work of forging is also notable. Beautiful examples of this work can be seen in the iron window grills and balconies, which adorn the streets of Priego.
Both activities have been reinforced by the introduction of craft schools, which have encouraged the conservation of these skills and the incorporation of young people into these professions.
An example of the excellence of these workshops is the construction of the pérgola in the park known as the Paseo Colombia, carried out as an act of homage to the creators of the rich artistic heritage of Priego de Córdoba.
