Galerias Portas do Mar

Connected to the old marina of Ponta Delgada and boasting a prime location on the seafront, Galerias Portas do Mar gathers various shops and a leisure area with a seaside garden promenade, as well as restaurants, bars, banks, travel agencies, and much more.


Popular souvenirs in the Azores include ceramic items such as hand-painted clay dishes, vases, teapots and mugs, as well as embroidery and hand-woven blankets, sweaters and other items. Azorean wickerwork, mainly baskets and furniture, has recently grown in reputation, as has Azorean wine, making them popular souvenirs and gifts.
