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.

Spent about 4 hours wandering around the stalls here and found some absolute gems... lots of things to choose from, with jewellery, alpaca, plants, home furnishings and touristy knick knacks just a start of the selection available. Some places had prohibitive pricing, but others were really open to negotiation (especially when paying with cash!) so take along your bartering cap... More

This market is quite big and you will need at least 2-3 hours to browse properly. Some nice local handicraft but overall, pricing is high. Worth a trip if yo have time to spare in Santiago.

Most of the vendors stuff is strickly for the tourist. There are a couple of exceptional artists with their own work, but the rest of the stuff you can pick up almost anywere else for less money. On the positive side I found a potter that does her own work and it is lovely. Plus I did find the jewelry... More

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
