To visit “La Rajoleta”, there is an established tour comprising one part in the outside of the site and the building side that houses the permanent exhibition.

Nowadays the site shelters the leftover of the settling basins, the mills room, the corner of the mud, the place and the chimney to vent the steam engine and an important set of furnaces are noticed: six furnaces of Arabic type, two large ones buried, two bottle kilns, and another furnace for ceramic luster.

Note that these leftovers are of extraordinary value. Both, the point of view of archeology as technology, let people know clearly the manufacturing process of the Catalan decorative ceramics from nineteenth century to nowadays.
