Pottery Workshop at Sao Pedro do Corval
Combined with the unique live experience of being able to see the clay being moulded by the expert hands of the master potter at his wheel, you can share his knowledge and experiences of the skilled craftmanship. In São Pedro do Corval, home to more than two dozen pottery shops, is by excellence the largest pottery centre in the country and one of the largest in the Iberian Peninsula.
Among pots, potter's wheels, and kilns, you will find unique traditional practical pieces that take you to ancient times when the clay was moulded according to the needs of the work in the fields and the humble lives of Alentejo. The tradition of ceramics in São Pedro do Corval dates back to prehistoric times, thanks to the existence of clay deposits with specific features of this area in the County of Reguengos de Monsaraz, which have always encouraged this activity.
