Great shop, better than those that followed. Genuine locally made products at reasonable prices. Art Gallery upstairs was considerably more expensive but we found a few treasures (momentos) at very reasonable prices. Recommended stop

This building near the port is an excellent place to buy souvenirs straight from the artists. There are many sections and if you want to buy something, you will receive an order slip from the clerk. When done shopping, take these slips to the cashier in the back of the store and pay for them all at once. Your items... More

Most of us like to purchase a souvenir from trips; but it's not often you have the chance and choice of such beautiful works of art as you'll find here. The gallery consists of jewellery, pottery, toys, ornaments, wood and metalwork- all by different Uruguyan artists. We spent our first visit just looking, before going back to make purchases a...

So many things to see close in the Old Port this is one of them. There are cafes and restaurants and little shopping places also.

Beautiful Art all produced by people with ties to Uruguay. Variety of prices and helpful, knowledgeable gallery owner. If you love to collect art while traveling, this is the BEST gallery from which to purchase in Montevideo!!! Located down the street from the Mercado del Puerto in the old city of Montevideo

A must see if you go to the port. Lots of local artists work in the gallery. Owners are very helpful and knowledgeable. They try to help you rather than sell to you and they ship worldwide.

This gallery has lots of beautiful original pieces by Uruguayan artists -- watercolor, oil on canvas, ceramic, and more (both 2- and 3-dimensional). They're very kind about offering choices, and they're proud of the artists they represent, happy to print out information about the artists you buy. They're willing to ship or wrap for safe carrying. We were happy to... More
