Take a bit of the Village home with you.

Presentation

In the Aldeias do Xisto network of shops, only selected quality products are sold. From traditional to modern, these are hand-made items crafted by traditional tradesmen and contemporary artists, inspired by the people and culture at the heart of Portugal. Many of the products used to be known only to the inhabitants of these 27 villages. Others are reinterpretations of traditional processes and materials, truly contemporary design pieces of rural inspiration.

With the creation of this network of shops, a wide range of cheese, wine, aromatic herbs, infusions and regional sweets are available. Along with hats and scarves, rings, necklaces, brooches. You can even take some of the most original decoration or handcrafted artwork Take a bit of the Village home with you.

Immersed in nature... or in the city

Whether in urban or rural environments, these shops live the old paradigm of the local village grocery store, but with a touch of innovation that allows the bringing together of languages and people. Here visitors can find traditional products or designer items, and in some of them the locals still go to buy beans and bread and exchange a few words. The Shops are excellent starting points to discover other worlds. That's why, in these shops, the important thing is to enter without haste and with your senses sharp for flavours, knowledge and conversation. We bet you will be surprised.

Craft - Homeland of Cultural Identity

Over the years and through various projects, this territory has come to be known as a haven for reinvention and experimentation with craft + culture + nature. In the same way that language embodies culture, handicrafts and their materialisation in objects reflect and perpetuate the expression of an identity. Defending and promoting craftsmanship represents Aldeias do Xisto’s investment in the creation of a space where craftsmen are invited to create with the materials that transform the identity of our very time and space. Moulding, sculpting, fusing and interweaving these environmental, social, emotional and symbolic values, sustaining them in networks for building and sharing knowledge is of utmost importance in the search for new ways to promote the Aldeias do Xisto territories as a quality destination for living and creating. The results of this work and dedication can be found in Aldeias do Xisto shops.

Fair Trade

The Aldeias do Xisto network is a social, environmental and quality project, with the ultimate goal of mobilising an innovative concept of sustainable tourism in Central Portugal. At the same time, it is committed to defending fair and solidarity-based trade as a way of contributing to sustainable development, adopting a set of principles to this end.
