Posted by Fodor's Editors on June 30, 2011 at 1:00:00 AM EDT | Post a Comment

This is a country with a wealth of crafts—from superbly woven baskets to beautifully embroidered linens, to irresistible porcelain and pottery (you might want to pack your own bubble wrap and tape to get the latter home safely). Items made of cork, leather, and wood should make your list; so should port and other local wines. The fashion-design scene is thriving here as well: Top names include Ana Salazar, Fàtima Lopes, Maria Gambina, Manuel Alves, and Josè Manuel Gonçalves. See our Portugal coverage.
