Museum of the chamber pot
In the heart of Ciudad Rodrigo, at the foot of the Cathedral tower, travellers shall find one of the most original museums in this country. More than 1,300 pieces make up this collection where visitors can find chamber pots and spittoons of all kinds, shapes and materials: clay, porcelain, stone or metal, either simple or profusely decorated. The exhibition includes models from 27 different countries, from the Middle Age to our days.
Its founder, José María del Arco Ortiz, also known as "Pesetos", a collectionist born in Ciudad Rodrigo, invites us to travel in time by showing that the essence does not really change and also how the most simple thing can become a real work of art.
