Traditional Potters

There are numerous places in our province where you can find potters who still work in the traditional way. Until the 70's of the 20th century, some coastal towns such as Torremolinos or Fuengirola still persisted in the work of pottery, although nowadays to find a real artisan work we will have to immerse ourselves in the inland villages.

Coín has always been known for its traditional pottery, from vases to flowerpots, animal containers and many other traditional utensils. This deep-rooted tradition led to the establishment of a pottery school in the town where traditional utensils are developed.
