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.

  • There are many shops and open in the middle of the afternoon, just at night is that all the shops are open selling products from regional material can be straw, cloth, clay, glass, Tin etc. I suggest you go through the entire space to compare price and variety of products that can be paid in cash and on credit card and repeated, more products with time and patience we can find things different and unique as I found and I was pleased with the acquisition and as the location is very good for meeting in the city centre overlooking the Harbour and gastronomic Center of Barreirinhas. The trick is time and patience to get well. Make a reservation because space has no access for wheelchair users and disabled people, and visuals.
