Small and simple but full of charm, it's the hub of the Ivatan art community. Drop by, even if you don't end up buying anything it's food for your soul.

I love the paintings! It's good that young artists grouped together to sell souvenirs and their art. Their ref magnet would be more pricey than others but definitely more beautiful.

I was able to buy a painting done by a local artist. It was collage made of denim pockets and painted to be "bahay na bato" of the Ivatans. Loved the colors. It is my mom's favorite souvenir item from Batanes

Passed by this place and couldn't resist going in. It's outside walls had really bright colors made of different paintings on wood. We went inside and saw paintings of scenic places in Batanes. A must visit!
