Well worth the visit.
Sep 2019
Superb pottery, and you can see an artist at work. You can spend 5 euros or 5000 euros. Or you can just enjoy the experience.

Note: The photos and comments mix up two different Úbeda potteries
May 2017 • Friends
Úbeda has a wonderful pottery tradition. The most famous potters are two brothers, Paco and Juan "Tito" and their sons. Both have their potteries and shops in Úbeda. Readers of these TripAdviser comments should note that several of the comments below and photographs do NOT refer to Paco and his son Pablo Tito's pottery museum, workshop and shop on Calle Valencia. Instead, they are of Juan's and his son's place on the Plaza de Ayuntamiento.

I highly recommend visiting both places. The two brothers carry on the skills learned from their father, also a well-known potter. The work they and their sons produce differs with each pottery having its own style. Furthermore, the museum in Paco's place (referred to here) helps the visitor understand the historic importance of pottery in daily life, while admiring Paco's and Pablo's work. Juan's place, in turn, is a veritable Aladdin's cave of pottery pieces with colourful glazes set around a beautiful patio.

Artisans at their best
Sep 2016 • Couples
After heading off the main tourist path and down a steep hill we arrived at Paco Tito's. The craftmanship is beautiful. We were invited in and were able to explore both the shop and the workshop area. Paco Jnr was outside sculpting an amazing clay piece. It is so nice to be able to see traditional skills still alive and well.

Glad We Visited
May 2016 • Couples
We went into this place purely by chance whilst wandering round Ubeda and were so pleased we did. It is difficult to describe really, part museum, part shop and part home filled to the brim with amazing pottery made by Tito and his son. The room itself is quite amazing with a wonderful wooden ceiling and during our visit a log fire burning nicely. The pottery on sale is wonderful with so many unique items, with patterns and glazes very different from the norm. There is no pressure to buy, but we did and could have bought a lot more. I would love to go back.

Beautiful Pottery, Great Tour, Awesome Gifts
Apr 2016 • Friends
Paco and his son, Pablo, clearly have a family gift of making gorgeous pottery which they so warmly and openly share with any and everyone that wants to enter their studio and learn about it. Even if you are not interested in the process of how they make the pottery, you can simply browse the store and ooh and ahh over the various pieces they sell or head upstairs and walk through their newly renovated museum - which is very impressive as far as the pieces that have been commissioned and that are there for you to see! Their prices are VERY reasonable and they even accept "special projects" which can be made and sent to you wherever you live. I ended up buying a beautiful lamp this trip and it made it home without a problem. We also have a vase and two pitchers we bought during our last visit - I both admire and appreciate the artisan gift they have and share and am thrilled to have a few of their pieces in our home. Although not super easy to find, everyone in town knows Paco and Pablo so just keep asking for "Paco Tito" and people will willingly guide you.

Must see - Characterful craft workshop close to Town Hall
Aug 2015 • Couples
I visited the shop (opposite Ubeda Town Hall) on 16th August 2015. This is a huge space full of modern and traditional ceramics made by Paco Tito and his son.

This is slightly overwhelming as there is so much to take in.
Lots of traditional pottery vases, jugs, plates and cups in all sizes and colours. There are pieces from as little as 5 euros. Take some time to walk aroound the different parts of the pottery shop as there are a lot to see.

A workshop and store room is towards the back and there is an Andalusian patio in the centre of the shop.

This place is a must see part of Ubeda due to the prestigious awards this artist has received and the characterful workshop he opens to visitors.

You HAVE to go here...
May 2014 • Friends
This was by far my favorite place in Ubeda. As soon as you walk in, you are surrounded by hundreds of beautiful, handmade pottery. You have the traditional Ubeda green pottery as well as the gorgeous hand painted blue and white patterns. Everything is pretty reasonably priced as well. I got to meet Paco Tito, who was very excited to have 2 American girls in his shop. Although, he doesn't speak any English, so conversation is very limited. He makes the pottery just as they did hundreds of years ago. His pieces are truly authentic. His shop is definitely worth the visit and I was able to bring back 3 pieces back to the US and nothing broke!

Wonderful collection of great pottery in the studio
Apr 2012 • Family
We stumbled on this shop, which is just a block north of the cathedral, on Plaza de Ayunatimiento (sp). It was filled with wonderful ceramic pots, plates, etc. The atmosphere was relaxed and we were able to wander around without any pressure. We ended up buying several items at what we felt were reasonable prices--especially in comparison to smaller shops elsewhere in Andalucia. Our daughters loved this place (ages 15 and 20) and even enjoyed relaxing by the shop's fireplace (see photo).
