A Day Trip to L'Olleria

Wednesday 13th September 2017.

L’Olleria is a town with a long tradition of craftsmanship and in past centuries, glass was the most
important material for the town, making L’Olleria one of the major glass producing areas around the world.

We started with guided tour of the Capuchin Monastry which houses two museums: an exhibition of paintings and glass and the ethnographic museum. Next a visit to a glass factory to see the process of glass production.
This was followed by a tour of the Casa Santonja (the old "Palace of the Marau”) which contains valuable ceramics and a great noble hall, decorated with paintings influenced by the Enlightenment and liberal Freemasonry at the beginning of the 19th century.  Finally, we had a relaxing lunch the local Restaurante Casa Manola.
