Fodor's Review

Keep an eye out for the Alfarería Doña Rosa, a workshop named for the woman who invented the technique for giving the pottery its distinctive gloss. The revered craftswoman, famous for her photos with visiting celebrities, died in 1980, but her descendants continue making pottery the old-fashioned way. The workshop, where shelves upon shelves with items for sale line a small courtyard, is open daily 9–6.
