This village is really beautiful, you can see many things here, you can see some big birds, ducks, chickens, etc, but the cage where they are is not so big... anyway you can see beautiful things the people make there, but it's expensive, that is the only bad thing about this place. This place is very secure and clean, the... More

The idea of a colonial village setting to explore the handicrafts is nice and with the numerous shops to explore one also gets the opportunity to possible meet the artists as well as the craftsmen. The jewelry ranges from basic to some well done unique individual pieces well worth the price. A great place to pick up a little something... More

The artists work in the shops as you shop. I purchased four items and took photos with the artists. Great spot to shop for real Chilean art not... More

Try to take time to visit and enjoy this place. It is an artisan village where most of the pieces are made by the artists. You need time to walk around and check out the different stalls. Wonderful finds in jewelry, knitted items specially. Good place for a coffee or a good natural drink and try their empanadas, they are... More

A picturesque little "village" of shops and restaurants selling authentic hand-crafted items (and food), from ceramics and leather to jewelry, paintings and empanadas--at the end of the red (L1) subway line. In most cases the artists are in their shop working away during the day--so you know exactly where the wares come from. There are also several good authentic Chilean... More

If you are in Santiago and are looking for souvenirs then this is the place for you. Great items that are all locally made. This is what I was looking for since you want actual items made in Chile and not imported. you need time to walk through the stores. You can easily spend a couple of hours here. Great... More

Ok to come here for a stroll if you happen to be in Las Condes, but otherwise, not worth it. Crafts sold here are more expensive than at other markets in the city.

We spent the better part of the day enjoying all of the shops and all of the great crafts on display. Very cozy, beautiful wares, friendly people, great photo opportunities and also found some delightful things to bring home, to remind us of the wonderful time we had in Santiago!
