Leather Museum of Ubrique

conventoWe started  our articles on leather-related museums referring to the closest to us:

Leather Museum of Ubrique

Located in the old Convent of Capuchins (right picture). The funds are up items related to Ubrique leather from diverse backgrounds: both machines and tools and parts manufactured in Ubrique throughout its history. The idea of the museum is building on real objects and phenomena being based on the comparative information of the documents consulted and provided by our elders.
