The store was filled with unique tiles which were traditional and contemporary. There were other handicraft items as well. There are three locations in Porto. I believe we were at the Rua Mouzinho da Silveira 136 location. It is definitely worth a visit.

If you are looking for a shop with beautiful Portuguese handcraft do not miss Prometeu. I found out the one at Batalha today and couldn’t resist buying several items. I am looking forward to go back as many others caught my eye. Small detail: I am not a tourist. I live at Porto.

Prometeu is a store with several locations in Porto; we were at Rua de Sao Joao. I, personally, bought gorgeous ceramic trivets and purses made out of cork that were really well made. There were all sorts of jewelry items as well as cork eyeglass and phone cases etc. The people working in the store were lovely and helpful. They wrapped up each item for travel. Have fun and allow extra time there for browsing.

I think this is one of the best places to buy cork products in Portugal. I bought several gifts there. The prices are fair and in some cases better than other places I saw around Porto or Coimbra or Lisbon. Having said that, if you head down to the water you'll find lots of vendors selling jewelry made of cork. Happy shopping!

We shopped at the Rua Alexandre Jerculano 35 location. Almost across the street from bus garage parking that many tours use. Loved seeing the artists working. Great selection of tiles from $ to many dollars. I thought prices were reasonable. Great care taken in packing all our purchases and they all made it home to USA in perfect condition. It;s only a 5-10 walk to famed Cafe Majestic.

This is a beautiful ceramic shop. I purchased two items, one a beautiful ceramic newt for he wall. Cost 15 euros. The assistant packaged it for transport home to UK using corrugated cardboard and as she did this there was cracking sound which didn't sound like the cardboard and I was concerned it might be the ceramic breaking. I didn't allow her to wrap it in brown paper as I was going to check it immediately back at the hotel next door. Of course, it was broken and I returned to the shop right away. They completely denied that this could possibly have happened, I had broken it of course...why would I open it so quickly if I didn't have good reason?? They phoned the manager or owner of the shop who said it was my word against hers. No apology, no replacement, no refund. Not good, very disappointed. I left in disgust.

We loved walking through this place and gazing at the plethora of tile as art. Very creative, high quality, and varied.

We visited two Prometeu stores in Porto, this is a chain. They sell lovely tiles and ceramics like the ones you see on buildings throughout Porto. I had something I wanted to buy -- a name plaque for a desk -- and they do not have these in stock in the stores.. When I inquired, the clerk directed us to another Prometeu store he claimed took custom orders. We went to that store -- R. de Alexandre Herculano -- and approached a sales clerk at the main desk about placing an order. She told us they have so many back orders that she didn't think it would be worth our while to place an order. She was fairly negative, and we left discouraged. We did not buy anything else. If you want something ready-made, there is a large selection.
