I came here many years ago and had fond memories and it's just as quaint and delightful as I remember. Set in the surrounds of the Los Dominicos church it's a fully enclosed market with lots of little shops in a labyrinth of alleys selling slightly nicer quality artisan fair. The variety is all there, it's got great atmosphere, and... More

I loved this market. I've been to quite a few whilst travelling in Santiago and Tulca. The quality of the goods and the variety of shops is exciting to view. I made several purchases to take home with me. You can see the artists working on their crafts in their shops. The area of the village interesting to walk through.... More

The church dates back to 1544. Easy access in Santiago. The attached village has many friendly venders that sell all sorts of handmade goods, including woolen products, jewelry, and pottery. Some speak English. Food, drinks are available. Places to sit down and enjoy the view. Friendly cats roam the village and with a large central aviary with chickens to entertain... More

Charming place to spend at least a couple hours browsing the many shops . Clothing jewellery and handmade items all at a good price . A little gem n the middle of the city . There are plenty of places to get something to eat and sit . Well worth a visit .

Our guide took us to this former ranch to shop for handicrafts. We weren't too excited about it at first but soon were enchanted with their many tiny shops and good selection of souvenirs, large and small. They have good prices on their items but won't bargain -- don't try, at least with the shops we visited.

Excellent place to visit for all kinds of high end crafts at reasonable prices. The village itself is delightful and quite extensive. Plenty of shade, places to eat and good facilities. Spent two hours here, easily could have spent two more.

Beautiful, interesting, easy to park, found several wonderful crafts I brought back home. A small country town in the middle of the city.

We spent a couple of hours shopping at the Handicraft Village, and we were surprised by the number of shops and the relatively high quality of the goods in many of them. We also discovered, contrary to what is typical in Chile, that you can bargain on price, with the bargaining being for a discount on multiple items, or for... More

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
