San Antonio de Ibarra

San Antonio de Ibarra, located on the outskirts of Ibarra, is a village where roughly 25 percent of the 15,000 residents are involved in some form of sculpting or wood carving.
Carpentry shops are located throughout the town -- along the main plaza, in homes and in small artisan workshops. Although San Antonio de Ibarra is now primarily known for its wood products, residents also use cement and metal in their sculpture, which can be ornately painted.
The town has several small churches but the main draw is definitely the woodwork studios like the rooftop one I visited.
