I have been to this shop a couple of times. It was a great place to buy gifts for my friends back in the States when visiting southern Portugal. And why lie, I always bought a little something for me too.

This shop is full of delights, from olive-wood honey drizzlers to large hand-crafted throws, and including wonderful pictures of Tavira doors and windows made by the owner, Jane, herself. Everything is ethically resourced and prices reflect this, but everybody will find something lovely within their budget.

Is a store with funny articles and super original, but extremely expensive. If you want to buy gifts is not the place, but if you just want a small piece, enjoy and visit

We really liked the ceramics and the "door" images are great fun- solved all our holiday postcard requirements. Clever buyer obviously.

After reading other tripadvisor comments about the great shopping at this establishment, I was not disappointed. I was able to find souvenirs for almost everyone on my list. If you like one of a kind, arts and crafts, soaps and dipping oils etc. this is the place to shop. The sales person was extremely friendly and helpful. It was easy... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review, we are so pleased you liked our shop on the bridge. Unfortunately our other shop, just a few metres away, was closed for a week or two for repainting when you visited otherwise you would have found some lovely things for grandchildren. We do hope you'll visit us again one day to... More

Having visited visited Tavira on a number of occasions now, this wonderful gift shop is without doubt the best in town. Beautiful gifts and a not a piece of tatt in sight. Can't wait to call in again.

Fun store to browse at the variety of Portuguese crafts. High quality, very artistic: ceramics, paper products, jewelry, prints and art, some books, and much more. Located near Roman bridge on east side of the river.

I found some unusual gifts in this wonderful shop. Family and friends back home loved the soap, the unusual Christmas tree decorations and the great recipe book. I bought a stack of cards which were paintings of scenes mainly in Tavira. I plan to visit again in January to see what unusual birthday presents I can find.

Casa Das Portas is a lovely gift shop in the heart of Tavira. There is a wide range of handicrafts at prices to suit all pockets. I love the pictures of doors which, I understand, are all taken locally and are then printed on the most fantastic quality canvas. I am currently buying one a year for a family member.... More
