Full description
The guided tour of Grottaglie will develop in the historical center going to visit the church of the 14th century and the heart of its activity - the ceramic museum and the ceramics district. The Museum of Ceramics is kept inside the 14th century Episcopio Castle. The original nucleus, with a kept and eastern sector, was later enlarged and remodeled with a facade from the Baroque period. The central tower, with a rectangular plan, stands on three floors. The museum is divided into sections dedicated to archeology, traditional ceramics, contemporary ceramics, majolica and finally nativity. Inside, you will be able to see many ancient and modern ceramic artifacts. After the castle museum, you will visit the nearby ceramics district, where pottery is still produced today, the most important place in Puglia. Along the ravine of San Giorgio, a district of expert ceramists has formed with laboratories and kilns in the rock used in the past as mills.
