Loads of great products- very different to the many souvenir shops in Funchal. Could have spent a fortune in there! Bought a couple of handmade ceramic Christmas tree decorations and some postcards featuring the painted doors on the street outside. No pressure to buy anything.

An amazing shop full of all sorts of art work. Prices and styles to suit every taste.Fantastic atmosphere and no pressure to buy. I wish i had more money at the time to indulge, i could have brought home lots of beautiful treasures.

Lovely shop selling interesting tiles, ceramics and artwork by different artists. Spent a good half hour browsing and bought a unique good quality tile for a reasonable price. Good for gifts and quality souvenirs - and no tourist tat in sight.

Thanks for the warm feedback. On a small island it is especially pleasant to visit small galleries ... but very concentrated on art. Hope to see you again
