OLERÍA DE BONXE

POTTERY
  • Bonxe ceramics, one of the four ancient ceramics in Galicia, sits in this county.

  • Numerous testimonies speak about its family inheritance and Lucas Labrada, in 1809 records the fame of the Bonxe pottery at fairs of Arzúa and Monterroso, among others. Over the decade of the 50s all the neighbors of the parish still worked on pottery (“oleiros“, they were called so because they were those who made the “olas” (pots), or also “cacharreiros“). The good geological conditions of the area always favored and maintained the pace of production of the oleiros.
