This is a small boutique that sells gorgeous, hand-painted scarves. We have bought gifts for family here and recommend it highly. The shop owner speaks English and will describe the artistry behind each scarf. Each item is unique and lovely.

them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
