Azores: Shopping Holiday

Europe's Best Kept Secret

The Azores itself is not a major shopping destination, but is a good place to pick up local handicrafts, teas, jams and wine. Ceramics, baskets, embroidery, and bedspreads are good shopping suggestions, which are usually crafted from locally produced natural materials. Wine from Pico, Graciosa and Biscoito (Terceira) and other Azorean alcoholic drinks such as passion fruit and Japanese plumb liquors are also items of interest on an Azores shopping trip or holiday.
