Amboa & Maeloc is a gift boutique specialising in ceramics from around Spain, where you can buy everything from small figurines to larger decorative pieces. The shop also sells handmade jewellery, made from jet (azabache in Spanish), a black mineral stone which has been used since the times of the ancient Egyptians and Romans. The stone is believed to act as an amulet protecting the wearer, especially pilgrims who have walked the Camino de Santiago.
