Many streets and buildings in this historic city date from the 17th century, the region's gold and diamond digging period.

Here you can see the Old World collide with the New, as you walk over streets paved with cobbles, locally known as "children's feet." The market itself is the site of a popular fair where you can blend in by dancing with the crowd, listen to traditional and modern music, or relax over some local delicacies and drinks sold right on the spot. Nearby is the Cooperativa de Artesanato, which specializes in the renowned Arraiolos-style wool carpets, which you can also purchase at the market.
