The products are really beautiful and the employees are great. Not sure if worth it going to provesende just for the store but the combo papa zaide and loja amarelo is a must whenever you are close to the city

Bought three items from this store in the lovely village of Provensende. A visit to the two churches, the bakery and the Manor House should not be missed. A truly charming experience

We were staying In the middle of deepest Portugal and out of nowhere stumbled upon this amazing shop. Great local artifacts, bright and cheerful with a delightful lady at the desk. You must visit the douro valley and a small village called Provesende.
