Centro de Artesanato, Barreirinhas

(2.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
A small crafts market, Centro de Artesanato sells handmade straw articles, from sandals and hats, to popular tote bags, wall decorations, rugs, table covers, and even lamp shades. All make excellent gifts and souvenirs, and are sold by local artisans at low prices. These regional artists are renowned for using a special kind of straw, made from a native tree called buriti. You can also buy local liqueurs here, as well as various types of regional food. Close to the center of town, this simple market is worth a short stop on a hot afternoon. Centro de Artesanato is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Barreirinhas Edition.

  • Nice for the architecture, products, location and people who work. The prices are fair overall. Is by the river and it's not like the neighboring restaurants exploration.

  • This store is located in the Centre of Barrerinhas and concentrates the crafts of all communities. She concentrates a large number of works very well made and varied. Are pieces of apparel, accessories, parts for cake decorating and memories. Most and made of straw of buriti. Are very well made and the prices are equal to or smaller than those of the communities.

  • Even though tourism is stronger on weekends, disappoint me to see most of the shops closed in the afternoon, in the middle of the month off. A city that its tourist pole is the focus cannot commit this sin.
