If you love ceramics, don't miss this gem. The collection of ceramics was extraordinary. One of my best moments was a woman pointing to some platters saying that her grandmother had a set of plates exactly like those displayed.

The structure itself is beautiful set in a former palace with an interesting history. The ceramics cover hundreds of years of styles and techniques. It is an amazing collection. Some of the styles are still being made in the area (albeit very expensive). The admission...More
