Agost – Pottery Workshop

Agost is a city in eastern Spain in the region of Valencia in the province of Alicante on the Costa Blanca, 18 km from Alicante. Due to the distance from the Mediterranean Sea, the city is not a typical resort, but it is a settlement with very old pottery traditions. The production of clay vessels has been one of the main activities of the local population for many, many years. To this day, several workshops have survived in which everything is hand-made. There is a pottery museum in the premises of the former ceramic’s factory in Agost. The building has been completely renovated and re-decorated. Each of the three floors tells the story of the entire history of pottery in Agost. During a visit to the potter, you can get acquainted with the specificity of his profession, see the way of rolling clay pots, hear legends and stories related to Agost and workshops. In Agost you can visit a dozen potter’s workshops, but especially we want to recommend Alfareria Severino Boix, a workshop where apart from visiting and listening to stories about traditions, it is possible for children and adults to feel themselves as a potter where they can break away from sunbathing, relax and check your creative potential. It is an interesting way to spend your free time. With the help of four elements: water, fire, air and earth, you will create your own unique dishes that you can take with you. Open between: 9:00 to 14:00 and 16:00 to 19:00 from Monday to Friday. Closed on Saturdays. On Sunday open only by appointment.  

And after the emotions associated with it, regenerate the strength by visiting one of the two vineyards. During the wine tasting and listening to the stories about the traditions and making wine, savor its taste.
At the end of the day you can go shopping to the vineyard shop to buy their local wine, olive oil and spices – Description of vineyards in another article – On the way to Agost we pass the village of Novelda where we can find many monuments and interesting places to visit – description of the town Novelda in another article.
