Pottery and porcelain factory

Due to the abundance of clay, numerous pottery kilns had already been installed on these grounds during the Almohad dynasty of the 12th century.

The six high chimneys that dominate the view from the city-center are part of the earthenware and porcelain factory that was set up in 1841.
