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.

A great place to spend a half a day in Santiago and do all your gift shopping. Browse to see a variety of birds, all kinds of arts and crafts, good food and clean bathrooms. Enjoy a local Cristal beer when you need a break and you may be visited by one of the many community cats that live at... More

Was recommended to me by a local, a great place to find unique and special gifts. Relaxing and approachable. Most stores closed on Monday, plan accordingly.

The place to go and find the souvenirs you need. We found what we needed and enjoyed some live music and food before heading back to the airport on the subway/bus, which by the way was surprisingly easy to find and take.

150 shops, cafes, baños and snacks. Jewellery, wood products, guinea pigs, wool, paintings, ceramics, toys, plants, plant pots, chickens, ducks, peacocks, clothing. 2 hours of walking around! Not wonderful for wheelchairs as the surface is uneven but oh so lovely. Lots of trees and places to sit. I counted 6 cats and only 1 dog here.

Los Dominicos village, despite its expensive handicraft, is a charming place to enjoy and shop, because it is located in the foot of a hill in Las Condes borough, and also because of the little but noisy stream that makes Los Dominicos a special meeting with nature inside the city.

Worth a train ride to the end of the line. Local artisan fill 200 tiny shops to bring you insight into the Chilean world. From Laps Lazuli to Pastel de Choclo. The locals can purchase chicks, ducks, birds all the way to high end artwork.. Definitely worth the stop. Great place to do some holiday shopping in the months ahead.

This little "village" is just steps away from the Santiago subway system the only way to travel as parking is very scarce around this area. The village represents well the Chilean handicraft in particular jewelry designers are very well represented and some of them do wonderful and original work using lapis lazuli. There are only 2 stores selling Pomaire pottery... More

Was not really impressed. I do think you can find a lot of lapis here. I found their prices were a tad high. I saw the same things when I went to Valparaizo and cheaper prices. I saw a doll at the Dominicos for 5 dollars more and it was the same doll. At the Dominicos I was able to... More

Great place to find local art, crafts, jewelry and clothing. A mid-range in price for better quality items. If downtown Santiago, recommend to take metro line #1 to Los Dominicos...cost about 1500 pesos each way. Very easy to get there. Great empinadas and other food too. Most shops take credit cards and generally give 5-10% discount for cash/pesos..but need to... More

The pueblito and church both have an interesting past and are worth learning about. Now used as a place to showcase and sell handicrafts, you will find something for all your friends and family here! Dont forget to have lunch because the little cafe serves great traditional food. Service isnt hot though!
