Worth visiting excellent display and hard not to admire the skill and workmanship. Must admit to purchasing some items for home.

Interesting Shop.
Aug 2018 • Couples
An interesting shop, also selling all kinds of 'alabastro (albaster) items, from small souvenirs, to lamps.
Albaster is a rather soft kind of natural stone, often used for carving.
A nice place to visit indeed and to look around for a short while.
But we could resist the temptation of buying something there, because we didn't need anything.Not a cheap place, BTW.

Interesting visit but be aware of the dust if craftsmen at work making hand-carving alabaster
Jun 2018 • Couples
We went as part of a group and looked around at hand-carved alabaster objects on the shelves and in the storeroom. There were around 30 of us crammed into the small shop, but then the craftsman began turning a demonstration piece on his lathe. Alabaster dust shot into the already hot atmosphere and nearly choked those standing near the lathe. No good for anyone with hay fever or a respiratory condition. Be warned!

Souvenirs
Apr 2017 • Solo
Very big schop of souvenirs at every price category. You can buy a art-deco vase for 2000 euro and you can buy an alabaster paper for 3 euro.
