I really enjoyed the experience there. The space is not so big, it has a little museum of precious stones with relative history, a beautiful garden and a place in which you can buy gift and regional dresses.

Here you can find all kind of gifts, arts and crafts and such to buy at the same place and for a fair price. Also visit the gems museum and offices where they craft jewelry.

In an unusual place once a prison, operates a museum of gems, jewelry craftshops and a charming chapel. You can find nice jewelry at fair prices. You can also order a personalised jewellery or make adjustments in yours. Well worth the visit.

The place has noting very special other than the huge gems you see on the pics. Actually is more a shopping mall than a museum. If you want to buy jewelry and Brazilian gems maybe the place is good....

They did a really terrific job converting this old jail house in a jewelry handicraft center. The architectural aspect is admirable. You will have the opportunity to see your selected jewelry piece being made.

Espaço São José Liberto used to be a prison and now is a very fancy museum that shows the gems from Pará. Mineration is a very strong economic activity in the state. You will find a very interesting souvenir shop there and I recommend bying "Licor de Graviola" and the exotic chocolate.
