Pottery Barn of Vigan, Ilocos Sur
Clay plant holders (?) drying.
June 16, 2012
One of the stops of any of the tours of Vigan is the pottery barn (not the store but a real place where workers are creating pottery). It is located in the city of Vigan and they say you can try creating your own pot. We did not try doing this as we are in a bit of a hurry (the kalesa we were riding costs Php150 per hour).
Entrance is free and there are stalls selling some of the products of the pottery as well as other types of souvenirs.
I don’t know where they actually sell most of the products they create as most tourists don’t have their own vehicles (including us) or will not have brought a big vehicle to transport these big pots.
It’s a nice place to visit, especially if you can stay longer and try creating your own pot.
