Las Vistillas, Traditional Ceramic and Ethnográphic MuseumIt is a site of tourist and cultural interest. Individual or group visits can be made. If it’s groups of school children there needs to be prior consultation. Las Vistillas is located in an exceptional position on the southern slope of the Guadelahorce valley 20 Km from the Costa del Sol (Marbella, Fuengirola, Mijas) and Malaga.As well as the pottery workshop, where centuries-old style ceramics are made keeping alive the traditions of Coin, you can also find the Ethnographic Museum “Las Vistillas, Coin Rural Life”.Through the museum exhibits visitors will learn the history of Coin and the Guadalhorce valley region in the twentieth century.Las Vistillas is situated high above the valley and you can see as far as Malaga to the Sierra de Ronda and El Parque Natural Reserve of the Biosphere Sierra Las Nieves.A school visit is an opportunity for students to get to know the recent history of their area and practise traditional activities such as ceramics.

We thought we'd learn something, see something interesting .. and we left disappointed. Yes there are many ceramics on display, those outside are varied and some were damaged. It's quite a nice venue and has good views over the local area

It is a beautiful location, really out of the ordinary. However, it seems the owners don't know or don't want to make anything out of it. It could be a great B&B with vistas, a café, whatever. Alas, they only offer a rather small shop...More

This pottery is really quaint and acts as a sort of museum for country things. The pottery items for sale are beautiful, varied and unusual.

Friendly staff and nice views but not really much to see. There were no activity when we were there. They charge a entrance fee for the museum but at least the parking is for free.

We were received very nicely but there is not much to see in the Museum. Nobody was working while we were there, that would have made the visit more interesting. Beautiful ceramics though but also quiet pricy.
