Manises is another lovely town with a long history of ceramic production.

The Museum of Ceramics  is a gem.  I loved how they displayed works with shards at the bottom of the case.  We were toured around the city and visited two of the production factories, one that specialized in the lusters the region is famous for. This town is considered one of the most important ceramics centers of Spain.  Many of the mudejar tiles we saw in this region were actually produced in Manises.
