Definitely a great visit in Santiago, easy to get to from the Metro (exit and turn around, don't cross the road, walk through the park and look for the church towers) and many shops to choose from. Also the owners aren't pushy. I went on a Sunday morning and it was fairly quiet and the temps were cool. If you like to browse a lot you could spend an afternoon or morning here. Prices are reasonable, maybe a little higher than what one would generally spend on souvenirs, but Chile and Santiago in general are expensive, so the artists must earn their cost of living. I highly recommend.
Where : Pueblito Los Dominicos – Santiago - Chile Title: I think its a MUST visit place in Santiago ! The Pueblito Los Dominicos is a really nice public park and nice area if you want to buy handcrafts from Chile. They have really beautiful hand made pieces and textiles, some restaurants and coffee places where you can spend at least half day there. The place has an easy access by metro where you can get out in the metro station “Los Dominicos” and from there it’s less than 10 minutes walking distance. You will find really nice crafts to buy but make sure you get some cash with you because usually most of the little stores don’t accept credit card and we ended up not buying something we really wanted to buy because of that. They have a ATM machine around but we didn’t trust it. Anyway, even if you are not planning to buy anything, it’s still a nice touristic place to visit, with a traditional “Village” architecture and good empanadas. Grade: Eli = 5, Serge = 4 Recommend: Yes we totally recommend.
Great place to shop and not feel it is a tourist trap. Great shops with all home made crafts and jewelry. Plus the prices are less than a mall and many can be negotiated, if you enjoy that.
Great spot. Lots to see. Fair Trade vendors so prices are set... No negotiation available today. Still got some well priced souvenirs.
A good selection and variety of local art and handicrafts. The prices were reasonsble. A number of stall owners could speak English. Restaurants on site sold local foods which were well priced and delicious. Toilets were clean and free.
A little out of the way of downtown Santiago, but a convenient metro ride. This artisans' village has all manner of jewelry, souvenirs, and knick knacks to suit any budget. There are a few cafes serving local cuisine. Everyone was incredibly helpful and there was no pressure to buy something. Worth the slightly longer metro ride.
This market is a great place to get a hold of interesting and unique cultural trinkets if Chile. On top of the various art and clothes and jewelery, you can buy very tasty empanadas here which are baked in what looks like an outside brick oven. I'd recommend this place as a must visit, although I must warn that you may soon end up spending way more than you initially planned on ^_^
Very attractive setting for a craft market. Prices are above the average for the crafts sold ( it could be argued that this is the case because of the type of market). The food is reasonably priced and the quality is good.
This is a fun craft place to visit with many tiny shops. Many fun souvenirs to buy and not the usual touristy junk. There are Jewel made of a local crystal that grows in form of a flower, many wood objects made of unusual wood and my favorite, carved match sticks that are truly work of art.
Beautiful, so many small shops of handcrafted items from Chile. I found everything I was looking for; copper jewellery. Lapislazuli, alpaca hats, etc, ponchos, leather. Unique items. Scarfs,aprons, pictures, painting and much more
Nice artesian market. Long ways away but if you like locally made handicrafts and gifts it’s a nice place to visit. Food is ok. Not many choices but it’s not bad. Beer is cheap 😄
A lovely place to wander ´round and shop... most of the "locales" are owned by the artisans themselves. Many of the items are unique and are only available here. Try to go when it is not peak tourist season in order to browse without the chaos of the crowds. I prefer to go during the week or, for example, in March when the summer vacations have ended, not only to avoid the crowds but to negotiate when they have less volume and are more eager to close the sale.
