MUSEUMS OF MOROCCO
SAFI


NATIONAL CERAMICS MUSEUM

The Kechla citadel built by the portuguese in the XVIth century offers a spectacular view over the roofs of the medina which descend in a cascade to the Atlantic.
but this is only one of its attractions since the Kechla also has on display the very finest pieces of the famous Safiot pottery.

With its engraved, stamped, moulded and sculpted decoration and the subtle effects of colours achieved by painting on the enamel, the extraordinary relief effect which resulted was the pride of Safi.
The pieces on display in the musuem are, of course, not for sale, but why not pay a visit to the potter's quarter?
using a traditional potter's wheel, artisans and artists shape, bake and paint vases, tajine dishes and tiles while you watch.
