The lower floor houses a comprehensive presentation about the exploitation and the use of the clay and the history of ceramics in Galicia. Opening hours from 10:00 to 14:00 h from Monday to Friday.
Access
To reach the Brañas of Valga from Xanceda, follow the AC 223 motorway Travesas bound. After passing past Xanceda and Mesia, you will get to Visantoña. On your left you will see the remains of a large abandoned knitting factory. Just where these ruins finish, there is a detour to the left we must take. Once you have taken it, 50 metres away, and on the right, you will see the ethnographic museum Brañas Valga.
