The Origin

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.

This made Alcora prosper towards a future that would be linked to ceramics forever.

Foundation

Following the path and development of Ceramics, Don Federico Michavila Pallarés founded Torrecid, a small company of Frits and Glazes in Alcora on 15th August 1963, with the support of his father Dr. Federico Michavila Paús, the local doctor.
