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!

This place is about 3 blocks from where the subway line ends. Close to walk back and forth, they have a market on weekends and it is really cheap (tomatoes, vegetables etc) Inside you can take pictures of all the handcrafts they sell, to me overpriced so it is just to wonder around and take some pictures, it is worth...

A delightful surprise: a local craft market that was full of little stores selling locally made products. And lovely items they were too! Easy to get to on the red line metro (just go to the final station Los Dominicos) and then just walk down behind it a bit. It's a village, free to enter with about 100 little shops.... More

Our first destination this morning was Pueblito Artesan Village at Los Dominicos. It is a assemblage of about 100 small clay and thatch-roofed huts and workshop shacks that house artists and craftsmen, located adjacent to the San Vincent Ferrer Parish Church that is a National Monument. A bus load of Australian tourists had arrived just before we did, but they... More

Take the red line metro to the last stop-Los Dominicos. You will find the artisan shops behind and to the right of the large white church. Entrance is free and all the items sold here are certified made in Chile. There are so many shops that you will have trouble seeing everything in an afternoon. This is a wonderful place... More
