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.

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

This turned out to be much more interesting than we expected. There are a lot of stalls, and most of them are interesting. There isn’t much of the standard tourist junk. We found lots of things we could happily have bought, and at reasonable prices. As it was, we bought a lovely wooden sculpture, two pieces of attractive jewelry, and... More

Tucked away behind spanish walls and under tile roofs, the kiosks inside Los Dominicos offer a variety of handicrafts native to Chile--hand knitted hats and phochos/pashminas, lapis lazuli penguins, original paintings, copper, silver, it's all there in one charming place.

We took the metro out to Los Dominicos Handicraft Village at the end of our busy stay in Santiago and Chile....and were so happy we did. It was a week day so fairly quiet in the village but offered us some shady shopping and a quiet place to eat lunch. The shopping is varied and some is original which is... More

A bit out of town but not a problem as its the last stop on the metro line. Not your usual street type market as it is a properly set up market with not just stalls but actual producing artists. The market is nicely shaded, with a great variety of vendors and also has some food outlets. We were there... More

I only had about 30 minutes to pass through here and wished I had way more time! Each store is unique and in some shops you can see the artists working. I think the prices were reasonable, especially considering that many items are handmade. This would be the ideal place to come if you need to buy a lot of... More
