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.

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.

My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful morning at this village on the second to last day of our tour in Santiago. Expecting a touristy market filled with the usual souvenirs, we were more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived at a charming village full of native trees, small bridges and flowing streams. Although we were a little put off... More

Perhaps 100 stalls with mostly handmade or good machine-made versions. Very little made on site, very few workshops visible. Friends tell me most vendors buy their stuff somewhere in town and then really hike the prices. Apparently aimed at tourists who want something quick and easy for their souvenirs.

Many options of handicraft work, emphasis in works with copper, lapis lazuli and others local gems. Easy access, near the subway. Take your time, it takes a whole afternoon to visit it.

Nice place to visit, but I hear you can get better prices elsewhere. The shopping is set up like a small village with a very pretty church in the front. Most of the merchants take CC/DC.

The market is quite the adventure! Some things are of course over priced and can be purchased for a lower price elsewhere, but it is a great place to walk around and enjoy Chilean handcrafts!

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.
