    Cheiro da Terra - Centro de Artesanato: Souvenirs from Brazil for your friends at home

    by mangueirense Updated Jan 5, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to bring beautiful souvenirs from Brazil then make sure you'll go to the "Cheiro da Terra" complex!
    They have a big variety of souvenirs, beginning by postcards to jewelry, huge ships from the Northeast, etc...

    I have not seen a bigger variety of souvenirs like in this complex, even not in "Mercado Modelo" (Salvador) or any other place!

    And the best of all: The prices of the souvenirs are really cheap compared to the bigger cities like Rio or Salvador!

    So if you are there take just souvenirs for all of the persons you want to give, you'll not find better oportunity !

    Pontal da Barra (neighborhood): Local Artisans and Crafts

    by DSwede Written Jul 14, 2013

    It is not specifically one shop, but rather an artisan and craft work neighborhood. There are lots of stores and boutiques to choose from. Walking up and down the street, they have most of their items hanging for public display so you can easily see what they have.

    While you work up an appetite walking the area, there are a few reputable seafood restaurants in the area.

    What to buy: Woven crafts are most common here, with things like clothes, tapestries, blankets, etc. However, they are also the random work work, carvings and paintings.

    Cash is always excepted. Credit is becoming more common from what I'm told, but there are some bank machines nearby if needed.

    What to pay: Most prices are posted, being much more reasonable than if purchased in the downtown areas. However maybe some basic bartering can be done.
