Authentic Apulian crafts

Immersed in the olive groves that cover the area outside Lecce, the complex of the Abbey of S. Maria in Cerrate houses a shop that sells the most excellent local craftmanship. The products come from a selection of the best local handicraft production: wicker baskets, objects made in olive wood, typical ceramics, picture postcards and much more. Here, you can find both contemporary objects where tradition is reinterpreted by the creativity of young craftspeople, and products made by elderly artisans, repositories of ancient knowledge. Choosing these products helps to preserve ancient crafts and support Italy’s artistic heritage.
