Fun place to visit to see the process first hand and buy pottery. The pottery was beautiful although I wish there was a larger selection of plates that matched.

I visited the factory in the village of San Antonio instead of the retail outlet in Pana. At the factory you can get better prices, but even at the full price this pottery is a good value. It's beautiful and the craftsmanship is superb.
