Master Spanish craftsman showcase their geometrically intricate woodworking styles

Los Tres Juanes is a specialist company dedicated to creating historic woodwork in styles unique to the south of Spain. Their master craftsmen not only carry out pain-staking restorations, but also create new constructions for museums, churches and palaces. The company’s main activities include the construction of Nasrid-inspired roof frameworks, Alfarjes (polygon-shaped painted ceilings) and Mudejar-style coffered ceilings.

Their work is mainly exported to Bahrain and Algeria and can also be admired in the ceiling of the Picasso Museum in Malaga and in the restored ceiling of the UNESCO-classified Alhambra Palace in Granada, which has breathtaking Arabic detailing.
