If you want to return home from your trip to Rio de Janeiro laden with presents for your family and friends, the stuff you can find at La Vereda beats anything you would buy at a regular tourist shop. Here you can find small decorations, lamps, paintings, tapestries and even some furniture, and a lot of beautifully crated ceramic dolls inspired by local legends.

Not only would you be supporting the local craftsmen, but you'll also buy something really nice for your home.
