Our history :: ALTERET CERÁMICAS | Handmade Terracotta | Ceramic Tiles

About us


The history of Alteret Cerámicas goes back more than 55 years, establishing itself in 1964 in the location of an old pottery from the 13th century.

The small family business began its career manufacturing ceramic brick for construction, later specializing in the manufacture of totally handmade floor tiles, perfecting its artisanal baked clay, a fact that promoted growth and made Alteret Cerámicas one of the main European producers of handmade terracotta.

Our products combine tradition and avant-garde, creating unique pieces for each of the projects in a completely handmade way, guaranteeing our best quality, design and innovation for projects that are carried out around the world.
