Ciudad de la Porcelana de Lladró (La)
In the 1950s, the Lladró brothers started up their business in a small workshop in Almácera, a town surrounded by the fields of Valencia. This is how the porcelain giant began. Today, Lladró figurines are made in what's called The City of Porcelain, an industrial complex occupying more than 100000 meter square of floor space in Tavernes Blanques, a small town only 6km from Valencia. More than 2200 people work there, most of them craftsmen. Visiting the City of Porcelain is a privilege reserved exclusively for members of the Lladró Collectors Society.
First off, this isn't the easist place to visit. I think we took the metro out to it (at least two changes) and then a decent walk from the stop. We had a tour (in english) of the work areas and it was neat to see the way they formed each individual flower on the statues. They had a neat museum of all the retired and special ones they have done over the years. Around the factory, there are several shops that sell the "as is" ones, where the color is off, or a piece is missing. Things only a professional would notice but you get it for cheap. Unless porcelan dolls are your things its not really worth the trip way out of the city.
