History: 125 years of tradition

GRANDA is the result of one man's dream: D. Félix Granda y Buylla, priest and artist. In 1891, concerned about the decadence of liturgical art since the end of the 19th century, he brought together the best craftsmen and artists of the time with a single objective: to restore sacred art to the splendor that had characterized the Church for centuries.

It was not just a matter of making pieces suitable for worship. They had to be works of great beauty, worked with care, using the noblest materials and recovering the sacred symbolism that had been lost over the centuries. "To offer to God the most precious thing we have", To "make an art impregnated with the odor of Christ", a living art that would show Jesus in each of its manifestations, were the premises that moved D. Felix Granda.

It was as the GRANDA art workshops were born in 1891.imbued with a vocation of service to the Church. Silversmiths, image makers, sculptors, chiselers, each in his own specialty, shaped chalices, ciboria, tabernacles, altarpieces and other liturgical elements necessary for worship.

More than 120 years have passed since its inception and GRANDA continues to develop the same work begun by its founder: to create handcrafted unique pieces of great beauty, perfectly suited for worship, using high quality materials and adapting each design to the space for which they are intended.
