This handicraft village is a great place to shop for traditional Chilean arts and crafts and one of the few places you might be able to bargain in Santiago.

In late December 2016, my wife, my daughter, my grandchild and I took the Metro Line 1 to the last stop on the Metro line, Los Dominicos. After exiting the Metro we walked through a large park up the hill to a unique artesanal market to the right of the buildings at the top. My daughter, who lives in Santiago,... More

Los Dominicos has over 100 small handicraft shops, mainly modest jewelry, leather goods and wool. A quiet respite from the busy city, located at the end of the red metro line. An easy way to see the good Santiago subway system. Unfortunately, there was nothing that really caught our eye to buy.

This is a great craft village with shops that are above the average and are made by local craftsmen. The quality of the items here were better than we found at other craft malls in Santiago and the prices were very fair. Try to avoid going late on Sunday afternoon as some of the shops close up early or don't... More

Although not necessarily on all tourist itineraries in Santiago, this craft village in Las Condes is a gem, and deserves a few hours of browsing, even for a casual lunch. It is much larger than it looks, with passageways leading to areas hidden from view. The variety of crafts is also very large.

This is a great little raft village lots of items are handmade at the site by various different craftsmen. We found the prices to be quite fair. You can find quality items in every price range. There are also a couple of little restaurants in the pueblito if you get hungry.

I can't remember how I found this spot 20+ years ago when I was in Santiago on a business trip, but I found a beautiful gold and lapis lazuli necklace for my wife, and an equally beautiful malachite and silver necklace for my daughter. I greatly enjoyed shopping the pastiche of little shops, some with dirt floors. Items ranged from... More

We spent the bulk of one day here, and we were reluctant to leave. There are more stalls than time to give them all justice, and whether you want traditional Chilean crafts or new artwork you can find it here. There are sculptors, weavers, woodworkers, jewelers, leather workers -- really, whatever you can think of. We ate lunch at one... More

A short walk from the subway station, it's a craft market filled with small shops of wonderful hand made products of all types. High quality goods at reasonable (but not inexpensive) prices. Don't miss this site if you're visiting Santiago, Chile.

Had heard good and not so good about this market so was a bit hesitant about spending taxi money but I felt it was well worth it. I bought a lovely handmade alpaca jumper and a couple of small souvenirs. It has a nice atmosphere and as it was a drizzly day it was a good choice.
