La Safor

La Safor is water, fertile land and culture. If any town can gather together and mix these three elements, it is Potries. Also, this is how Potries has one of the most cared living water heritage.

In February, el Porrat de Sant Blai, one of the most important in the region, is celebrated with activities throughout the first fortnight of the month. The major festivals take place the last week of August.

The visitor will be able to enjoy a didactic route through thepartition mechanisms, weirs, irrigation canals or mills. And from the water and the land, from mud, one of the most characteristic traditions of the town is born: the pottery.

In the past, many families of Potries were dedicated to making pots and utensils of mud to sell them afterwards. At the present time the municipality has restored the house-workshop of the last potter, Àngel Domínguez, to turn it into an ethnographic museum. The Culture of Potries breath into its network of historic streets and buildings linked to the most important dynasties of the Valencian Renaissance, such as the current town hall that joins the Borja and Centelles houses, and the cultivation of canyamel.

The region maintains an annual event with Potries for its Porrat de Sant Blai, where young persons as well as old persons enjoy the tradition and the best potter cuisine.
