The building itself is already a gem, located in a mansion of the fifteenth century the museum is divided into three floors with twelve rooms. On the ground floor there is a large collection of vases, plates and figures showing examples of the art of this family of potters and understand why they have become so famous for their works. The most interesting is the incredible bathroom built in brown and green colors.
Located in the basement is the pottery, where his potter’s work have developed several generations of this family and before them, many potters of the Andalusian era. This is one of the last six Arab furnaces still in operation in Spain. You can buy items in the museum itself and on its online store.
