Hand-made goods: Nativity
There are a lot of shops selling hand-made products.
I bought a nativity, made of clay and hand-painted, it is of a naive style. The nativity has only 5 pieces (Jesus, Virgin Mary and S. José, the cow and the donkey) but I found it so simple that I couldn't resist it. It wasn't cheap, but one must keep in mind that it is hand-made.
I no longer remember the name of the shop, but it was situated by the square of the former Town Hall.
O Poial da Artesã: Souvenirs
Well, i could not leave this beautiful small town without buy a souvenir.
So i entered in a local souvenir shop and i took a look around and i chose a little miniature of an Alentejo house and a beautiful cork object.
In the narrow streets and alleys you can find small traditional art shops.
They have crafts things hanged on the walls of the houses/shops, so you can easily identify them. Take a look at the photo.
What to buy: You can buy shepherd's art in wooden, cork and horn objects.
