From the beginning of the 18th century to the present time, the town of Alcora has been a key element in the evolution and development of ceramics.
In 1727, the IX Count of Aranda, D. Buenaventura Pedro de Alcántara Ximénez de Urrea y Abarca de Bolea, taking advantage of the good quality of the raw materials and the ceramic tradition of the area, created the Alcora Royal Factory of Earthenware and Porcelain, considered by many as a Manufacture ahead of its time due to the innovation in its production and commercialisation systems.
