Mari Solari, owner of Las Pallas has been the highlight of our trip to Peru so far, She kept my friends, partner and I amused and amazed for hours as she told us about her collection of Peruvian folk arts and the history of the pieces in her shop. It is a real treasure trove of beautiful and interesting pieces... More

The lady that runs the shop is extremely nice and will give you a tour of some of her personal collection. There are lots of cool gifts here also that are hand made from other people in Peru. I went here at the end of my trip so I was able to find some last minute gifts. The only day... More

This folk art retail shop looks like an extremely well curated folk art gallery. There is an excellent mix of items from across Peru and the buyers absolutely select only top quality work. Of course the prices are higher than buying directly from the artisans, but what traveller has the time or the connections? Well worth a visit.

What an amazing place. You think you're looking for a souvenir shop but what you find is an amazing glimpse into the artistry of Lima & Peru. Mari is from South Wales but has been in Lima for 48 years. She is delightful and has a deep passion for keeping tradition alive. She a stickler for quality and workmanship and... More

The shop is very nice, the owner is a very knowledgable person in peruvian culture. I was very impressed with her knowledge. She let us see part of her house and It looks like a museum, she has very beautiful pieces.

This shop is in Lima’s Barranco District, not far from Miraflores. If you are interested in Peruvian folk art, it should not be missed. The owner and her daughter are very warm and welcoming and have their own very interesting collection. Even if you aren't in the market for folk art, it is a good education in Peruvian pre-Columbian art... More

Las Pallas have a large collection of all types of handmade crafts from throughout Peru. I particularly liked the beaded jewelry and hand carved gourds. There are options to choose among a wide range of price points.

We were warmly welcomed into what can only be described as a folk art museum and store on the loveliest street in Barranca. The owner who has amassed a wonderful collection of the finest handmade Peruvian art also shared her extensive knowledge of the people and regions from where each piece was made. We left knowing more about the craft... More

I did my research before my trip to see the various traditional handicrafts Peru is known for as I always pick up art to decorate my home with. I knew I wanted a retablo or two and from Trip Advisor found that this store is known for authentic crafts including a good selection of retablos. The owner takes pride in... More
