    Lovely place for souvenir and crafts shopping
    Lovely artisanal village market for all types of handicrafts and souvenirs. We had a lovely stroll through the market on a late Friday afternoon and purchased copper crafts, Llama wool sweaters and other souvenirs for friends and family back home. The prices are a bit higher than what you can buy from roadside vendors but the quality seems better. The place was not crowded and we felt safe walking around. The church next door looks very nice but we didn’t have time to go inside. Definitely recommend for souvenir and craft shopping when visiting Santiago.

    Artesans in Santiago
    Our tour ended with breakfast so our tour guide recommended this place. We went before noon by Uber and it's not a street fair, it's an enclosed/outdoor place where artisans sell their wares. Wonderful, high class clothing, jewelry and odds and ends. We spent lunch here in the little cafe and in total we spent about 3 hours walking around. We spent money and had a good time. A little out of the way but Uber got us there and back.

    Nice market with good quality items
    We stopped here with a tour from our cruise ship. The market was very nice with lots of quality souvenirs. Many of them were handcrafted by the locals that sold their goods here. Since we were on a tour our time was limited. It would have been nice to spend a little more time here. If you go, I would allocate at least two hours.

    Best Place To Shop in Santiago!
    Los Domenicos is a, truly, artisan Pueblito. All products are hand made and are emblematic of the native populations of primarily Chile; but, also Peru, Ecuador and Argentina. It is a cozy little Pueblito that makes you feel that you are in a long-ago village. A perfect place to buy those items that you need to take back to family and friends after visiting Santiago, Chile. The very best spot to shop for unique items to take home. We go there every time we visit Santiago and never have not found something to take back with us.

    Quality crafts in a tranquil setting
    An oasis in the city with lovely artisanal shops, cafes serving local specialities and interesting exhibitions. Definitely worth a visit. There is an impressive range of crafts at reasonable prices. Makers are on hand to talk about their crafts. The layout with leafy trees, little waterways and pretty plants makes it a very pleasant place to while away some time. It is easily accessed on the metro

    Good Place for Traditional Crafts (with a Slight Premium)
    Neat little space for traditional crafts. They actually do a good job focusing on Chilean handicrafts versus allowing the space to be filled with kitschy souvenirs. I’m sure there a premium to items but it is a convenient location to look for more traditional items. Not a must visit place but if one has a couple of hours it’s a nice spot to include for a visit.

    Well worth a day!
    This market was amazing! We had such a fun time here. We came to Santiago a day earlier than our tour started and spent the day in Centro Artesanal Pueblito Los Dominicos. It was a wonderful market full of artisan hand crafted items. We enjoyed our day so much! Have friends going back next month and they are going a day early just to visit this market!

This is a wonderful location with an enormous variety of handicrafts from jewelry to textiles and metal. Prices were reasonable. We particularly liked finding a small horse made from woven horsehair! And the country's natural stones...lapiz lazuli and a stone that looks like a cross any way you cut it.

If you are shopping for only magnets or knick knacks - this might not be for you. They have them but so do other souvenir stores in the city.
This is an area that is home to artists and artisans from the central, north and south regions of the country. They call this the Patrimonial Zone and it offers a diverse selection of crafts that include antiques, jewelry, paintings, home-decor, leather-work, copper cookware and traditional food. It is the perfect spot for local souvenir shopping.
Some tours actually stop here. We asked our concierge if the taxi driver taking us to the airport could stop for 20 minutes while we stopped. He obliged and we got what we were looking for.

This is a fun and large place with more than 200 shops to choose from. Skip the Artisanal market with mass-produces trinkets downtown, get on the metro (red line), the center is on the last stop, to the right of the church.
Huge selection, watch the masters do their craft, reasonable prices. Credit cards are accepted, clean restrooms, a few coffee shops to get refreshments. The center is open the entire week, but more than 70% of the stores are closed during the week (even then you will find stores that offer all art and crafts). I went on a late Saturday afternoon and on late Tuesday morning, both times I found beautiful items to take home.

As part of our Santiago City Tour, we stopped here for refreshments and to shop. I have to say this was the nicest place in any of the Chilean cities or towns we visited to look at handcrafted items or jewelry(if that is what you are looking for). In fact we found a shop that was selling photographs of Chile by Norberto Seebach. In our travels of South America it was difficult to find any photography books, but in Los Dominicos this shop not only had his photos, but a 2020 wall calendar and his latest photography book on Chile. He just recently passed away in December 2018 and this volume was just published in 2019. We were really pleased to find this as a memento of our travels to this part of the Americas.

This is a nice location for buying high quality souvenirs and crafts at very reasonable prices. There are plenty of stores were you can can get beautiful lapis lazuli jewelry which Chile is famous for, from very inexpensive to more pricey pieces. Although it may seem a little bit out of the way,it is easily accessible via Line 1 of the Santiago Metro.

This market is a bit far from other touristy areas of the city, and even when you go to Dominicos park you may not see it right away (it's off the side of the church). However, it's a great visit, and it made me regret not having more luggage space. There are lots of amazing shops with all sorts of art, from sculpture, metal work, wood work, clothing, food,... It's not your typical tourist trap, but a place where you can get the real deal. I was lucky enough to visit when they had a number of shows inside, which made the whole experience even more wonderful.

Interesting place to visit while staying in Santiago. I enjoyed visiting all the craft shops with all kinds of materials. From beautiful wood work to Chilean stones. It is built in colonial style which gives a good perspective of how things has changed. The church next door and the park in front is also nice to visit.
