Recommended place to visit for tourists, with a great selection of local crafts, a nice setting in what was a local indigenous mission run by the Dominican community, there's also a few ducks, birds and peacocks, to keep the kids busy if they get bored As in any craft fair, there are a few good things made by artisans who...

Los Dominicos Handicraft Village is perfect for buying souvenirs. It is easy to get to as it is located at the end of the Red Line metro train. Exit the station, walk through the park, past the playground and parking lot and you will find the entrance there. Inside the village you will first see some chickens, peacocks, etc. inside... More

We shopped for several hours and my wife bought several things made of alpaca wool. The ceramics and leather were pretty but also very expensive. We saw two coffee shops inside while we were there. Bring lots of money!

We loved shopping in the quaint village. There are handicrafters doing their work in each shop and the quality of products is very good. The little village of shops is a beautiful area to walk around and has a collection of historic little spaces that were part of the farming area next to the church. I highly recommend a visit...

This was one of my favorite places to shop in Santiago!!!! Los Dominicos is just up the street from the metro stop. Very close and easy to find. The shopping area is filled with many tiny shops featuring artist's work. Many of the shops had workshops in the space and the artists were creating jewelry, stamping leather and painting canvases.... More

I loved visiting this place. It seemed so authentic. Watching people actually weave the scarves was fascinating.

Great souvenir shopping from local Chilean created handicrafts. It is a short walk from Los Dominicos subway station. It is very pleasant to wander through the shops which are arranged like a old village. Small shops with one specialty line the walkways. There are a couple of restaurants that look reasonable for drinks, snacks, or a meal. Most of Santiago... More
