  • We visited the pottery as part of a tour by train at the start of Panormos. We had a demonstration by the owner, very impressive speed. Then we found the shop, greeted us with a glass of raki and a Small cake, very nice. The prices are very reasonable and there is a large choice of colored pottery. As we ask a lot of questions, the boss took us both in his studio at the back and explained the manufacturing of pottery from the beginning to the end. Do not hesitate, it is very informative.

  • My family and I recently visited Tsikalario ceramics.I can't find the words to describe this place.Mrs Eleni the owner who actually makes the ceramics showed us all the procedure from the begining to the end of each ceramic.She even asked our children to play with the clay,and in the end she helped them make their own pot!They have a small museum where you can see all the machines that they used in the past to produce ceramics,you will even see the very old made of stone oven We all really enjoyed our visit and I higly recommend this place.Special thanks to the owners,they do amazing work!
  • Unlike the small shops selling pottery, here you can see a lot more. In addition to the store here is exhibition with postermi and exhibits that can immerse you in the basics of pottery craftmanship. A big plus is the workshops, through which you can learn the basic skills of their hands. I advise to visit!
