Ceramic coverings

Did you know that it is rather probable that the ceramics covering the floor and many walls at your home have been produced in the Valencian Region?

The northern mountains of the region are rich in clay. An incipient pottery and ceramic industry begun in the 18th century in small towns such as l'Alcora or Manises. In the 1950s these discrete workshops turned into big factories which are nowadays producing millions of square meters of ceramic tiles. Take a trip to Vila-real, the center of the nowadays ceramic production and visit any factory to see how your tiles are designed and produced.
