A appealing space jammed with all kinds of Chiapas related merchandise. Art, photos & jewelry, clothing & accessories - all at reasonable prices without any selling pressure. Glad we popped in for a visit.

A nice selection of art produced by 93 local artists. Enjoy just browsing or if you find something you love then grab a bargain. More enjoyable than most art galleries :)
