  • In the Plaza France many artisans gather since time immemorial. It is a very picturesque fair framed by the fabulous vegetation and highlighted by musical bands that happens to brighten the atmosphere. You can find real treasures, but also other less attractive yields. You have to look far before you buy. As is, ride fun, ideal for couples or in solitary.

  • For who has known, since decades ago, handicrafts exhibited at this fair, can not observe the relative decline in the quality of its products and the inclusion of many objects that are far from being handcrafted. Of course, there are still stalls offering very high quality, especially silverware and jewelry parts. The leather working has much declined in quality and design. I have no nostalgia that any past was better, but verification of the standardization of products.

  • skip it. most of the stands offer industrialised items, lacking quality and originality. the rest are just ordinary and pseudo-hippie-chic.
  • Very nice place, lots of beautiful handmade stuff. A bit overpriced as it is a tourist zone. Worth visiting.
  • Great place to get crafts
  • Really good collection of stuff and art. Worth a visit
