I love this place. It is beautiful and has a unique charm. The building itself is charming and has fabulous views from the upper level. There are numerous artisan workshops where you can buy handmade crafts fro the people who make them. It is the perfect place to by your souvenirs and gifts.

What a great way to preserve history! They have done a beautiful job restoring this old convent into shops and craft demonstrations. To me, there was a lot of the same stuff being sold!

House of 11 Patios has several artisan stores, but we want to most highly recommend the women's embroidery coop. We found beautiful embroidered clothes, napkins, bags, wallets, tablecloths, shawls... Prices were reasonable and service was great. In particular, ask for Sandra, a young woman working there who was outstandingly helpful, and who overnight embroidered a Noah's Ark scene for me...

If you are shopping for a local shawl (rebozo) seen on all the locals, this is the place to go. Excellent textile selection.

A former convent and now craft shops. Many of them sell lacquer or woven tablecloths, embroidered clothing and some small furniture items etc. It is a bit confusing and easy to miss some of the shops as they are connected below but the upstairs has different entrances and staircases. I bought a few things and took lots of interesting photos.

I'll add my voice to the many positive reviews for this collection of fine crafts venues, simply because I was so surprised that it was such a well thought-out, well-stocked and warm-hearted place.
