The place is at the end of the Metro Line 1. When approaching the place very nice views of the Dominicos Church backgrounded by the mountains. The complex has around 160 ateliers where you can find very good handicrafts made in glass, copper, etc. A range of prices can be found according to your needs.

Whether it is for Christmas, a birthday, an anniversary or just something for yourself or the family, Los Dominicos Handicraft Village had something for everyone...all three times I have been! This last time was just before Christmas and the shopping list still had a few question marks. Alpaca scarves and earrings were a high priority for this visit. Since I... More

Quaint area which is EASILY accessible by a clean, safe and efficient metro (10 minutes from the center of town). Spend a couple of hours browsing for souvenirs. Definitely seek out the pewter shop that has great designs and better prices. Jorge is the owner (he looks like Tony Bennet, you can't miss him). His store is tucked away in... More

Many artisans have their creations on display. Not cheap but, beautiful wares. Easy to get to, last stop on subway. Worth the trip!

We are a family of 5, my husband and 3 boys, 17,16,12. We were only in Santiago for a day and a half as we were headed to the Andes to ski. We had a morning tour of city, then we're on our own to do as we please. We caught the red line train to Los Dominicos as we... More

Mostly artisanal offerings of jewelry, textiles, arts. Ranging from tacky/homey tourist trinkets to some fantastic artwork and craftsmanship! We purchased some spectacular pieces here. There are about 150 shops, so you can get overwhelmed. Expect to spend some time just getting oriented and enjoying the works. The sellers weren't aggressive, and were very happy to answer even the most trivial... More

Los Dominicos Village is very easy to get to on the Red Line Metro- it is a very short walk from the Station. It is a very pleasant little set up, with many more shops than I was expecting. You'll find a fantastic assortment of jewelry- most of it made with Chilean stones like Lapis Lapzuli and the Flower Stone.... More

Love this place! It is really quaint and they have some really creative handcrafted goods that would make a great gift for friends and family. Be sure to take card & cash as some of the stores don't accept credit card.

A pleasant tree lined walled market. Mainly offering locally produced art and crafts. Ideal for picking up small gifts for the friends back home. Better quality than the majority of the tat normally found in 'tourist' markets. Enjoyed a quiet drink and watched the world go by.
