Pottery of São Pedro do Corval

Centro Oleiro De S. Pedro Do Corval

The pottery tradition in São Pedro do Corval, Reguengos de Monsaraz, dates back to prehistoric times, thanks to the existence of clay deposits with specific characteristics in this area of the Reguengos de Monsaraz Council. Among pots, potters wheels and ovens we discover unique traditional utilitarian pieces that transport us to ancient times when the clay was molded to the needs of the work of the fields and humble lives in Alentejo.

São Pedro do Corval, with more than two dozen potteries in constant operation is par excellence the largest pottery center in the country and one of the largest in the Iberian Peninsula.
