Do not forget to visit the museum (1 euros only). It is nice to eat at the square of that little town.

We stopped in Arraiolos for clay Park and tapestry museum, but managed to get only to the first one, as everything closes at 18:00. The stroll in the city center is nice, wide streets, covered with shade panels to hide from sun, small tapestry shops...More

A pretty and somewhat quaint small town famous for the production of carpets and tapestries. There is a centre featuring this manufacturing history of the town (which I didn't visit) and numerous small shops specialising in their sale. The town square is a peaceful traffic-free...More
