In the city and along the coastline there are many places that sell handicrafts. In Ponta Negra, the best are Vilarte and Handicraft Market of Ponta Negra. However, it is in Petropolis you will find the most sought by the tourists, the Tourism Center. Located in a former prison, the cells led to several shops selling works in clay, wood, fabric and, of course, cashew nuts and cane rum - cachaça.
