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

The village is located very near to the underground station and is easy to get to. The stalls sell local handicraft goods and are set around courtyard settings with cafés and restaurants. When we visited there was live music and a very nice atmosphere. A pleasant place to visit.

It was a huge area and after a few stores, the same comes up, so there is actually no need to cover the entire area. I compared prices for some of the souvenirs and found they are 2x more expensive compared to other shopping places. Great to see (some) artisans at work, but overpriced.

The place for simply admiring or shopping for crafts and fine arts, local to Chile craftsmen and artisans. A spectacular hideaway near central Santiago where you quickly lose sense of locale as this small village will send you on an adventure street by street with no hint of hustle and bustle of the surrounding city. Many cafes offer tasty treats... More

Many small shops and artisans with handmade goods. Good shopping, many souvenirs and handicrafts are available. Stroll from shop to shop in a pretty outdoor setting.
