A magical shop
Jun 2018 • Couples
Thank you trip advisor for letting me know this little gem was here. We were staying 4 nights in Segura de Sierra and I researched where to go before we arrived. This little shop was on the list but had been closed for the first few days. I emailed them and they arranged a time to come open for us! Everything was made by hand by them. The shop is full of characters and mythical beasts. We bought two little mice and a squirrel puppet. The lady was so nice and she and her partner obviously care a great deal about the puppets and crafts they make. My only regret was that I don't speak Spanish because I would have loved to find out so much more about their work. There should be more shops like this, with genuine people who care about artisan skills. A true souvenir from the area. Thanks again for opening up for us!

Locals didn't even know it was there

Read the review when I knew I was going to visit friends in the area. They said they did not know of such a place and so I forgot about it. We went to visit the castle and as we were walking up the hill I noticed it. The women that runs it said in Spanish that it was off season (September) and she just came in to tidy up. My friends were amazed and we spent about half hour in the shop. I picked up a hand made pionoco puppet at a great price fine piece of art for a great price. A must stop if your going to the castle and stop at the bar at the bottom of the hill.

A Great Find - thank you Tripadvisor

We stayed in Segura in May for 3 nights and as we are interested in the arts (including puppetry) we had Tetereria flagged up as a place to visit. Arrgh! The shop was closed when we arrived, and the next day. So we emailed and texted and eventually the owner - who lives close to Segura - arranged to meet us at the shop. Success! As is said by the other reviewer the shop is an Aladdin's cave of puppets and automata, all made by the owner (whose name I have unfortunately forgotten) mainly from wood, but also animal bones. We bought a vulture (buitre) that is now hanging in our lounge ( see photos) and is activated by our grandchildren - gently. A gem of a business, and while the owner does not speak any English it is amazing what can be done with puppets to get your message across to her. Give it a try!

Tim Burton style surprise in Segura de La Sierra
Feb 2014 • Family
It's one of the joys of travelling to discover tiny shops in out of the way towns where local artisans are making amazing things.
Segura de la Sierra is tiny. We'd come to visit the castle (impressive inside) and were down in the town looking for lunch. We found this shop instead.
The owners are puppet makers and have been making puppets for years. Some of our favourites were the string puppets constructed with animal bones that they find in the hills nearby. I've never seen anything quite like them. Great characters and intriguingly medieval clothing with great attention to detail- belts, hats, buttons. We bought a few.
We liked the flying dragons too. And the bees. And the 'Death' puppet with phosphorescent face and wonderful flowing black robes. A lot of the best puppets, we thought, were the ones with a touch of Nightmare before Christmas about them.
They sell dolls house size hand made furniture - traditional local styles. They do handmade pokerwork wooden key rings, hand drawn postcards of local animals, mobiles and all sorts.
None of it's pricey and it's all unique. They make it all by hand themselves.
Their English isn't fluent, but they're friendly and obviously proud of what they do. Everything was clearly labelled with prices etc when we were there and their stuff speaks for itself. The shop looks as if it's a pretty new venture - it seems they spent years travelling around international puppet festivals selling their wares.
It's worth a visit just to have a look - it's a bit like a visit to one of those traditional craft museums, but with a touch of Tim Burton about it.
