Potries town route

We suggest you a pleasant walk along the Potries town route, visiting the unique Town Hall building, a 16th century palace-house, former property of the powerful Borja family. It continues along Boamit Street, with apparent reminiscences of a Muslim past, to reach the Sants Joans parish church, dating from the end of the 16th century, where the relic of Sant Blai (patron saint of Potries) is conserved. This relic attracts thousands of visitors during the “Porrat” festival in February. From the Church square, through Major Street, it arrives at the picturesque País Valencià square, and continues along Sant Salvador Street, formerly known as “Alfareria”, as it was a pottery production area. It turns right by the Ermita Street until reaching the Calvary, and continues over the steep path flanked by cypresses towards the chapel, built between 1854 and 1865. From this point the panoramic views are fantastic, we can see an extensive plain surrounded by mountains extending to the sea. The route concludes with a visit to the Àngel Domínguez ethnological museum, the last vestige of a thousand-year activity in our town.
