  • There is so much pottery available in this area. But a check of Wikipedia and Trip Advisor led me to Porches. The history of the company is interesting. Much of the pottery from Portugal is “made” her...  more »

  • We visited several other pottery shops in the area and the quality at Porches Pottery is exceptionally high. Beautiful patterns and a wide selection of handmade pottery. The shopkeepers were very helpful, in particular by working with us to ship our selections to the U.S. Shipping is very expensive, but the prices are so reasonable that even with the shipping cost, we thought everything was a fair bargain. Also, there is a very nice cafe right in the building with the shop. The proprietor was friendly and the food was good.
  • It's a lovely shop come work shop such a treat to see genuine hand made pieces. An hour in the shop and an hour over lunch at the cafe makes for a really lovely day out. I've bought several pieces over the years and can testify that they stand up to day to day wear and tear remarkably well. A must see shop and a great place for holiday presents to take home - or presents for yourself !! The place can be very busy in summer and so sometimes you have to wait to be served but as a small family business I suppose it's to be expected but staff are always very apologetic and helpful. Love it here.
  • An absolutely stunning place. The fact that the pottery is handcrafted makes the whole experience much more authentic. The pottery is beautiful! I've bought a few bowls and crafts every time I've visited. The staff are delightful and such a pleasure to talk to.
  • Good for coffee and light meals. You can see the pottery being hand painted. Very helpful staff.
  • Very nice traditional pottery! You can see the staff working and there is also a lot of good stuff around to buy. In my opinion you can see the difference in quality to various other shops.
