  • You can buy some handmade textiles. The employees are very friendly, show you around and explain everything you need about the traditions and symbols of sewing. Definitely worth a visit
  • Gender and the crafts are of top quality. The prices are more elevated, but justified. It is the ideal place to get the textile piece that always remember you Antigua and Guatemala.
