This is not really a tourist attraction in my opinion, it's just a shop. It's a very nice shop and it has some really lovely products in it, but not really a destination. Not sure why it's on trip advisor.

A nice little art gallery close to the Darwin Centre. Worth a stop over on the way to or from the tortoise breeding centre. If you need something to remind you of your visit, this could be the place for you.

We thought this shop and Exotica had the best products to buy in town. Nice range of hand made goods. We especially liked the carvings made from the tagua nut.

I enjoyed just looking around in here at the gorgeous metal, textile, and painted art as well as the beautiful jewelry. Most everything was beyond my budget, but it was cool inside, and well worth spending time in this lovely gallery.

A wonderful gallery to look and appreciate. The artisans are at the top of their profession and the examples are awesome. I just wish I had the cash to afford the talent displayed.
