A wonderful gallery with two floors of exciting and imaginative art. The gallery staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Two beautiful vase sculptures by Irene Santa Cruz made it back to the UK safely as a result of very careful wrapping. Warmly recommended.

A wonderful small shop full to the brim with all manner of quality artisan fare. Lots of paintings especially on the second level. Good prices so it is hard not to take something home with you. Worth the stop.
