The Rural Shop is a necessary reference point to get to know Ponte de Lima’s excellent products. It is a representation of some of the endogenous products of outstanding socioeconomic significance in the region. Here you will find crafts, regional sausages, honey, jams, wines, chocolates, cheeses and more. Installed in the women’s prison building, in the 20th century, these facilities were used as military housing and the residence of the jailer and his family. Currently, it is a comfortable space, where you can have your morning coffee or a snack or do some shopping. The upper floor houses an auditorium, where meetings, seminars, tourist campaigns and even wine tastings are held. On the outside, the terrace offers a privileged view of the Roman bridge and the river Lima, the perfect setting to enjoy the local products in good company.
