  • A village if artisan families selling their own products. Interesting experience. Some pieces are really quite good and well made.
  • Nice experience and friendly people. Loved the big museum there!
  • Overrated. Highlight is the 94 year old matriarch who is helping preserve the craft in the family... Quality, finesse and designs of pottery could be better
  • It's great to see all artisans at work and try your hand at pottery. You also get a gift if you buy entrance ticket.
  • Not much interest to go there. Too much tourist buses, only a clay museum to see maybe with sculptures of European monuments. But you can spot them from the outside.
