Casa do Colono, Gramado

(3,400+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Even before you have seen the huge array of delicious groceries available at Casa do Colono your mouth will be watering, thanks to the smell of freshly baked bread wafting down the street. Set up as a cooperative, you can buy homemade produce, including salami, cheese, pasta, and local wine, from the members of the Italian and German communities who, historically, settled in Gramado. Next to the shop you will see the traditional clay ovens, where individuals showcase their skills baking breads, cakes and cookies native to their homelands. The locals willingly queue and so should you, the “hotdogs” are particularly excellent, especially when eaten warm in the beautiful Praça das Comunicações.

  • Charming store . A Must go! There you can find home made pasta, artisan jams, cookies, chocolate, cheese, juices. On weekends you can try fresh baked breads from a wood-burning stove.  more »
  • Though somewhat interesting, too simple an attraction, with all around. If one is passing by, go and have a look.  more »
  • Don´t dare to miss this tour. Open-air bakery floods the house with roasts smell on a daily basis.And of course, the Maria Fumaça trian tour  more »

  • Tasty wood oven baked treats.
  • Legal
  • Settler's House is a type of grocery store that sells articles produced in the region. Has many jellies, cheeses, salami, various types of biscuits, candied fruit, jams and breads. The prices are very fair. But beware, they don't take card, only cash. Worth it go check it out. Stay right next to the bus station.

  • SQUARE of ETHNICITIES/HOME of SETTLER/MEMORIAL ITALIAN HOUSE Duration: 90 min for my walk cost for 2 adults and 1 child (jan/2017): 0 what we think of the ride: the square is beautiful and well cared for, at the time of the Christmas light there are some embellishments, a little short of those of the rest of the city. There is a fair of crafts, fair prices. There is also a shop that sells some cheeses, jam, grape juice very good and fair prices. Settler's house selling cakes, pies and cookies-good, fresh and with good price. My tip is for bread with sausage, which is actually a bread made with chunks of sausage in the middle of the dough (here in Minas, bread with sausage is a salt bread, sliced and stuffed with a slice of sausage). Dough very different, very good, it's worth a try, and the best, very cheap by the standards of lawn. There is also an Italian House where are exposed some historical objects, you pay a nominal fee for the visit which is well patronized. Optionally one can rent Italian clothes to take pictures. The objects of the House are not as well preserved as the castelinho, but the value of the visit is much smaller too. RECOMMEND.

  • Always buy honey. The other candy whenever I buy are with the edges with mildew. The cakes on the side are the best of the South, but I believe they are not settler's House.
