Ceramics gallery and shop where the ceramics are created by local artists. Styles are diverse and interesting. Worth a look around. Very nice building too opposite the cathedral main entrance.

Nice selection of 5 or so ceramic artists. Quality and craftsmanship through out the small gallery. Mostly three dimensional however there are some prints and original paintings. Worth the visit and on the way to and from the museum tours.

The Alfajar is a store selling high quality ceramics from known artists. The store is located opposite the Cathedral, so it is easy to get to. The people working here are very educated and pleasant.
