Ceramic Museum - Museu De Ceràmica

Housed in the Palace of Pedralbes since 1990, the Ceramics Museum of Barcelona was founded in the year 1966. Exceptional works of Spanish ceramic art are part of the permanent collection. These pieces are quite unique and have a high artistic value.

All the ceramic pieces came from preservations of archaeological remains and private collections. Specially interesting pieces are the ones from the Almohade period, Catalonia and Valencia, the objects in the Mudéjar style from Aragón, the Morisco crockery from Paterna and Manises, the polychrome tile work and tableware from Spain's Golden Age. There are also some example from the Rococco period of Alcora and a few creations from contemporary artists.

Thanks to the great value of the collection, the museum is enjoying a lot of international prestige and has been internationally recognized as a leading center for the study of traditional and contemporary ceramic arts.
