If you are looking to take with you some interesting memories when visiting the island, nothing better than a craft market that is full of handmade products by artisans living in Menorca. Therefore, you will take a unique souvenir with the stamp that characterizes Menorcan crafts.
Craft exhibition in Fornells
In Fornells you can find, next to the old bus station, a collective handmade exhibition whose visit is free. It is a highly recommended visit that we can leave for one of those few summer days that is cloudy or raining.
What can I buy?
Naturally, Menorcan artisans are very creative and offer a long list of products, among which are: ceramics (wonderful pieces of design), leather garments (a variety of colors and qualities, for all tastes, clothes made by hand (with a different style, with colorful, elegant and fun designs), macrame, jewelry, soaps and much more.
Always something new
Every 15 days, new sculptures, paintings and photographs made by the artists of the island are exhibited. Therefore, if you buy an item, not only will you take a souvenir from Menorca but you will learn how the people of the island express themselves through their art. It is a unique opportunity to know the life seen by the eyes of the Menorcans and better understand the peculiarities of local culture and civilization.
What else can you do?
If shopping and attending exhibitions do not fill you at all, do not worry. In Menorca there is always more than you expect: in addition to product stops and cultural exhibitions, you can sign up for many live activities. That is to say, you can attend exhibitions of crafts and performances (theater, circus, concerts or DJs).
The place we are talking about is located on the pedestrian street that leads to the town square of Fornella (Calle Rosari 24). It will be easier for you, perhaps, to ask for the bus stop that is right in front, since it is the only one in the town.
