Default Local shoe repairs

Just a handy tip for anyone who needs to get their shoes repaired whilst in PP.
I was previously aware of a shoemenders just up past the church and to the left but the place has now closed.
The good news is that Arturo is now working from his home in Carrer Vierge del Carme. It's just past the Ferreteria del Puerto on the opposite side of the street. He is only open in the morning (closing at 1pm). He cheerfully took in an evening shoe which had come to grief on the Pine Walk, fixed it that morning - and all for the princely sum of one euro. Great service from a lovely person.

Yes, I think you are right Eleanor.
It's almost worth taking shoes out to PP to get them mended with the great service Arturo offers.
