Went to their cork shop. Everything was so beautiful, original, and authentic. Everything looked like it was made RIGHT there in their factory. Highly recommend and worth the visit. Also, the drive there is an attraction in itself... breathtaking!

We just showed up during regular business hours. We had a rental car. We bought a few small things at the shop. I did not feel any obligation. The fellow who explained things to us was very friendly
