    Regional Handicraft: great souvenirs made of cork

    You will find the most interesting shops selling products made of Cork in Rua Cinco de Outubro, on your way from the main square of Evora to the cathedral.

    What to buy: Take a look at my pics they have boxes, chairs and giant bowls made completely from Cork and in fact they are really extremely light-weighted and easy to carry home, it is just a pity I did not have the time to choose carefully.

    Regional Handicraft: Cork products

    by rita_simoes Written Nov 24, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Most of the souvenir shops sell cork products. You can find everything made with cork: bags of all sizes, hats, glasses, aprons, ecc, you name it. They are usually expensive, and I personally don't appreciate this kind of items very much, but it's a very regional thing and usually of good quality.
