By the afternoon, according to your personal tastes, we will visit one or two of the most important museums of Caldas da Rainha, devoted to the local artists (most known is José Malhoa and Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro) and to ceramics, sculpture, and painting.
If you want something more active, it is possible to visit a ceramics factory, allowing you to become acquainted with the whole process of the creation of a ceramic object, whilst accompanied by a specialized guide. Another option is a painting workshop, where you can decorate your own ceramic object or, if it suits better to your tastes, we can also visit a studio of an artist and see closely how they make their art pieces, observe the beauty of the objects already finished and, perhaps, you may try to manufacture a piece of pottery and exercise your artistic side!
