Perfect souvenirs from Portugal. You see beautiful tiles every where in the city, and this is the perfect place to buy some of those to bring back with you. You have really simple, modern ones, and elaborate designs.

As in every big city you have so many souvenir shops in Porto, but this shop is a real artist place. The ceramic is really handmade and the tiles are all different. It was a pleasure to pay some extra euros for this fine art!

There are 2 locations near the Douro. This is my favorite place to look for gifts and I always buy a ceramic ring - you know, a little something for myself. ;)
