  • Great place to buy souvenirs of Ilhéus. A lot of variety of products that meet all tastes and pockets. It has a playground and restrooms. Could improve the reception closes around 18:00 hs. Has what it takes to become an excellent point.

  • Handicraft market as many in Bahia and the northeast in General. It's worth to take souvenirs, but nothing different, besides the usual. If you do not have to take anything, not worth the visit.

  • I'm suspect to talk, because I love typical regional crafts. Everywhere I know, I'm looking for them to decorate my house with my travels. The site is rich in varieties, not all locations, but at very good prices! I just don't like the bathrooms, little choice and some inactive.

  • Lugar bacana.
  • Muito bom.
  • Ilhéus, como um todo, está abandonado. Péssimo em receber os turistas, o comércio da cidade simplesmente é inexistente. Nesse mercado, para se ter uma idéia, fomos visitar num sábado, às 14h, apenas 4 barracas abertas, sem nenhum artesanato local, coisas que comumente encontramos em qualquer local, péssimo atendimento e preços altos. Não indico e com certeza, não voltarei. É uma pena o que aconteceu com o turismo em Ilhéus. Lamentável.
  • De verdade, deixa a desejar.... Não tem coisas diferentes, tem muitas coisas, tem muitas coisas, q se encontra em qualquer lugar, falta criatividade, até parece q tudo q tem lá pra vender, é comprado fora da Bahia...
  • É uma avaliação de quem não aprecia muito coisas como este tipo de artesanato. Estacionamento difícil. Local pequeno mas com variedade. Próximo ao bradesco. Restaurantes no local. Bom para lembranças baratas
