Set In Stone – Impossible to Separate but Destined Never to Kiss:
During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Talavera de La Reina achieved great recognition, thanks to its ceramics. Wonderful pieces of pottery and Talavera tiles are found in the main museums of the world and in the most luxurious palaces all over Europe. The nickname of Talavera is ‘The City of Pottery’. We could have guessed this because after lunch we walked through the old city towards the River Tagus and our route took us past a succession of similar ceramics workshops and shops.
