I have been to this shop a couple of times. It was a great place to buy gifts for my friends back in the States when visiting southern Portugal. And why lie, I always bought a little something for me too.

Fun store to browse at the variety of Portuguese crafts. High quality, very artistic: ceramics, paper products, jewelry, prints and art, some books, and much more. Located near Roman bridge on east side of the river.
