Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
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.
