This handicraft village is a great place to shop for traditional Chilean arts and crafts and one of the few places you might be able to bargain in Santiago.

So much variety. Reasonable prices

The closest to "artisan village" in my travels. Unique well made items. And great to just stroll and get a flavour of the variety of regional artisan offerings.

This lovely grouping of true artisan shops is just fabulous. It is pretty and safe, with high quality items. From soft and beautiful alpaca and vicuna clothing, high quality silver jewelry, paintings, wood crafts, to unique clay pottery which you can only get if you travel to Pomaire south of Santiago. There little cafes with good local food also. I... More

It was nice to see all the craft work and we also ate at some authentic Chilean food. Service was attentive and everyone was pleasant. Great place to buy some knickknacks or gifts for folks at home.

If you are into the local culture and true souvenirs from your visit to Chile - don't miss this one. You will need two hours to get through it all. Recommend taking snaps on all the things you want to buy straight away form your first trip around all the stalls with the original price as discussed with the stall... More

The market is right behind the church.A short walk.There is every handicraft imaginable and of very good quality.They do take credit cards but do cash discounts.This is the place to... More

I hadn't tracked this village down on my first visit. I hadn't even done a search on it. If I ever go back to Santiago again it will be my first stop. 150 stalls of mastercraftmen's work. An absolute joy to walk around the little studios, dwaddle along the little stream to a few more studios, cross over little bridges... More

When in Santiago I always go here and never leave empty handed. It is a amazing place and over the years only got better. I have my favourite artists who I always find objects to buy from. I can' t help myself. Painted wood or ceramic large plates for hanging on the wall or statues of the Indians ponchos in... More

This is the perfect place to purchase souvenirs and handcrafted items. The variety is broad and there is very little junky trinkets. The selection is great and the prices are really good. The price of Lapis is much better than any place we went to in Santiago. There are places to eat and good bathrooms--face it, that is an important... More

This is a great little place to visit for handicraft shopping, people watching, or just to enjoy a walk in a pretty area. There are a couple of food options. Close to the main road, a short taxi ride from the nearest subway (Metro) station, and an excellent selection of handicrafts.

If you are looking for inexpensive handmade Chilean crafts, this is the place to go. Spent hours perusing the little shops
