We called here as part of a tour. There is a shop selling wicker baskets and every thing wicker. You can also walk downstairs to see wicker makers doing their work. It is free to enter.

Slightly hard to find the curve shop / factory, but succeeded. There are many beautiful curves, big and small things. On the lower floor they sit and braid. Good prices on baskets. Nice little trip from Funchal
