Pottery museum now open again

The interpretative centre and museum showcasing the traditional pottery in the mountain village of El Cercado, one of the very last places where pottery is still made in the traditional way as it was done by the original settlers more than 1500 years ago is now open again. It was sadly closed for quite some time but now you can enjoy the nicely laid-out exhibits once again. It is called 'Las Loceras' and located in the village square of El Cercado where there are also toilet facilities. The opening hours are daily from 11 am to 3 pm, except Mondays, and the entry is free of charge.
There are still three of the traditional potteries in the village where you can watch the potters at work in the traditional way without a potter's wheel, and all three include a craft shop selling the earthenware and other local products.
