The Escola de Artesanato do Capelo is the place where talented local artisans keep their legacy alive. Materials like fish scales, corn husks and the pith of fig trees are transformed into flowers, dolls, ships, animals and building models. Embroidery on tulle straws, painted shells and basalt statues can also be found.
