Some places are true portals to other dimensions where you might end up wanting to stay. O Caco da Marquesa is such a place: it makes you feel like you have just entered your grandmother’s home, with that comfortable feeling only ancient Portugality can give you.
You can almost pass by O Caco da Marquesa among the variety of stores in Alvalade. However, once you’ve laid your eyes on the storefront, you will feel the urge to know what precious pottery is hidden inside and maybe even listen to the stories about the artist that created those items.
At O Caco da Marquesa you will find beautiful decor pieces such as swallows or flowers made of glazed tiles, mugs, plates or similar crockery with a genuine Portuguese touch. This is the right place to visit whether you want to bring home a typical souvenir or you want to spoil someone you love – especially yourself. You will end up with the most delicate customized wrapping made by the kind lady. As a matter of fact, if you end up finding everything too lovely to be left behind, she will help you decide what is most suited for you or for the person you are about to please with a gift.
I strongly suggest you take a relaxing walk on a sunny Saturday morning and stop by O Caco da Marquesa. It will definitely inspire you to appreciate the most beautiful things Portugal has to offer.
