Great gallery, we stumbled upon it on New Year's day 2019 and were greeted with some madiera wine. Lovey experience. And the attached gift shop is special too. Karen from Edinburgh, Scotland

Loads of great products- very different to the many souvenir shops in Funchal. Could have spent a fortune in there! Bought a couple of handmade ceramic Christmas tree decorations and some postcards featuring the painted doors on the street outside. No pressure to buy anything.

Lovely shop selling interesting tiles, ceramics and artwork by different artists. Spent a good half hour browsing and bought a unique good quality tile for a reasonable price. Good for gifts and quality souvenirs - and no tourist tat in sight.
