Very different fine jewelry and silver shop in Puerto Ayora

In Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz, an island in the Galapagos group, you cannot miss the silver Art Nouveau gates at the entrance to a white stucco fine jewelry shop on the left of the road on the way to the Charles Darwin Research Station. The Art Nouveau gate is of particular interest. It is obvious that a lot of work has gone into its design and fabrication. It is something you do not expect to see on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!
