The art is amazing but if you want to spend all your money in it. You cant put i Price on art but if you are in a tight Budget or just in a normal Budget, consider other places to buy. If i had money to spend i would have buy one of their ceramics.

We discovered this hidden gem thanks to Trip Advisor!! This is a must-see. The house of world-renowned Master Sculptor/Ceramist Seminario is quite big and receives lots of visitors. All visitors get to tour the house (which includes a pretty garden with llamas and birds) and go through the different stations of ceramic work, seeing the local artisans at work. We... More

Pablo Seminario has 60 pieces in the Field Museum in Chicago. His studio is a wonderful place to visit. He and his wife both spent time with our group. They were both very charming despite the fact that their dog was undergoing surgery that day! There is a beautiful gift shop and they will pack and ship for you. Shipping... More

We discovered this workshop by chance on a lovely, quiet street lined with trees on both sides. Just the street alone was a pleasant change from the bustle and crowdiness of the other streets in the center of Urubamba. Upon entering we were treated to an even nicer surprise, a handsome building that served as workshop and store for artists... More

On my first day in the Sacred Valley, adjusting to altitude before going to Machu Picchu later in the week, I was privileged to tour the Seminario workshop and gallery in Urubamba. I highly recommend it. Pablo Seminario, his wife Marilu Behar and a team of artisans carefully hand make creative ceramics mixing the contemporary with ancient Andean techniques and... More

Pablo Seminario creates new cermaics using ancient Perucvian techniques and designs. The store is in front of the shop, and the staff has video and other presentations to show how they do the work. His pieces are traditional, a bit whimseical, and beautifully colored. Prices on his works were attractive.

We visited the studio and were given a guided tour of the whole creative process including a chance to to talk to the artist about his work and how the studio developed. The tour ended in the studio shop where work of all types, prices and sizes was available for purchase but with no 'hard sell'. This is a great... More

What a fascinating studio/gallery to visit in the heart of the Sacred Valley. An extra bonus was meeting the Master himself and to get an inside knowledge into his work. The tour started with a short film and then we were escorted throughout the workshops where we could see first hand the wonderful creations been made as well as the... More

I had heard and seen the work of Senior Seminario prior to our visit to Cusco. We placed a visits to his studio of our places to see while we explored the area. While it is a distance from Cusco proper, it is not difficult to add a stop at the work shop/gallery while exploring the other towns of the... More
