Mari is a wealth of knowledge about Peru and its history. Her house and gallery are a visual storm - there are so many artifacts and intricate pieces to explore. Prices are reasonable; this is a great place to bring back a piece of Peru. This is not a junky tourist art shop; Mari is the real deal.

Barranco is well known as a district to the south of Lima proper full of artists and musicians. Cajamarca is a street full of colourfully painted houses and shops, several of which sell Peruvian souvenirs and crafts. We thought the Artesenias Las Pallas was probably the best we visited. Prices seemed reasonable and the craftware was good quality and from... More

We had a great time shopping in quite a number of booths set up with all kinds of art and artisans. The prices were good and I loved that everything was actually make in Peru!

Situated at the front of a private house on Catamarca in Barranco, this is an excellent mini-tour of the best of Peru's national folk craft arts scene. The owner is a long-time ex-pat with a sizable knowledge of the artists and their works. Of particular interest to this writer were the incredible collection of retablos. Check out the pictures included... More

Nice and fun to see. Around this market are also 3 other artesanal markets situated. Many shops sell more or less the same items. It is nice to walk around for an hour or so and buy a souvenir here.

The owner is a well-known expert who has known many of the artisans and their families for many years. Best to visit here before traveling to Cusco or other destinations to see what genuine quality and fair prices are...you will see that most of what is sold... More

If you are looking for that special handmade little treasure, then this is the place to go. I stopped by on the beginning of my trip to Peru and am happy I did. There is a great selection of different handicrafts with a variety of price points including silver jewelry, knitted hats and gloves, gourds, small painted plaques, etc. After... More
