Town of potters
If you are interested in pottery, like collecting decorted ceramics, and enjoy watching skilled craftspeople at work - Desvres is the place to come! Desvres has been famous for centuries for the manufacture of decorated ceramics. Today you can still visit its potteries, see craftspeople at work, and choose bargains in the factory shops.

The town
Desvres is a lively market town, deep in the countryside inland from Boulogne.

There is a big weekly market, and good restaurants - many serving regional specialities.
