  • The visit to the workshop of Pablo Seminario and Marilú Behar, has been a real pleasure. Observe the artistic proposals of both, as well as the works of his goldsmiths was all a joy. The enhancement of the ancestral techniques for the production of ceramics and sculptures, as well as fusion with modern, make these exceptional artists. If they have to make a stop in Urubamba, don't forget to visit this place. Insurance come out with any parts!

  • This ceramics workshop is owned by the world-renowned artist Pablo Seminario, who has works in Chicago's Field Museum and the United Nations headquarters. Guides demonstrate the process of making fine ceramics and don Pablo himself, humble and warm, welcomes you to his studio where he tells of his own history among beautiful and powerful works of art. Many unique ceramic pieces are employed artfully in the construction of the lovely buildings and patios, creating a delightful and welcoming look. The store is full of reasonably-priced handmade pieces crafted by artisans don Pablo has trained. Each work is unique and there is no sense of mass-produced sameness. The ceramics are inspired by the rich and ancient history of Peruvian clay art. Friendly staff help you with questions and carefully pack your purchases to travel safely as hand luggage. The Seminario workshop is a must-see if you visit the Sacred Valley.
  • Beautiful ceramics on display. Of course we bought two pieces of art.
  • Typical tourist stop where they have demonstrations and try to get you to purchase local products. Although what they were selling was of very good quality.
  • Lovely tour and large gallery. We wanted to buy so much but needed it to fit in our luggage. Oh what a problem! Enjoy
  • It was inspiring to meet Mr. Seminario last week.
