Small Artisan Shop/Factory!

Worth a stop. Family business for 5 generations! Everything is hand-crafted and hand- decorated. You can watch the artisans work on potters' wheels.

Small and worth a stop

It was nice to see the workers hand crafting the ceramics. They were quite gracious. The ceramics are reasonably priced and small items make good gifts.

Small but Interesting

Nice small shop where they take raw materials thru from the shaping of items by skilled potters, to firing and hand painting and glazing. Very good selection of nice products for sale. Interesting place to visit.

A step back into history
Jul 2017 • Family
Didn't really think I was going to enjoy this part of the tour with Sarah from Harmony Trails, but I loved it! She took us step by step through the process and different areas/buildings and explained each one and what had or in some cases hadn't changed over the years. You can, from my understanding, do a self guided tour as well. The workers were very friendly, patient and explained what they were working on and why they were doing certain steps. Highly recommend with a guide unless you are fluent in Portuguese.

Watch the traditional craft in action! Buy from the source!
May 2016 • Couples
This place is fantastic! You can take a self guided tour around the factory and see all stages of the traditional art of making ceramics from molding to baking to painting. A quick tour and highly educational, you can get ceramics here for an extremely reasonable price and know exactly where they came from and who made them. Watch some extremely talented crafts-people make beautiful work. We went back twice!

Best place to buy ceramics
Mar 2016 • Couples
We visited both the ceramics factory in Ribeira Grande and in Lagoa. This one, in Lagoa, has a more extensive selection of ceramics that you can purchase, and while we were not offered a tour, we were allowed to roam through the production rooms.
