This is a gem. Lots of good quality alpaca mitts, hats, sweaters. Leather works, jewelry and everything in between. I fully satisfied my list for items I wanted to bring home and I didn't break the bank. Ask the price and don't haggle too much - you will likely be offered a discount on your total price if you buy... More

Lots of small shops. Shopping for souvenirs without any pressure to buy. You can spend 2 to 3 hours shopping here. Souvenirs include the Chilean gamut of lapis, jewellery, alpaca and knits, T-Shirts, wood and metal items, etc. Easy to get to by subway. Located adjacent to a very busy section of downtown which (it seems) gets pretty frenzied on... More

Every year in Chile we head back to this little market for a few gifts. They have your standard nick-nacks but also a few stands with high ends mill work, leather and shoes. Few little snack shops and a coffee bar are in it too. Not shady at all. Not super cheap but not stupid expensive like a few of... More

The handcraft center of Santa Lucia is a must-see place (safe place when you are already inside), that it brings together many types of handcrafts that are available elsewhere in Chile and Latin America, but here everything is in one place with an excellent variety. Prices are good in that comparison, but not the best, but you will pay the... More

This is very near to the metro station and the prices are just fine. A little bit drowsy in this area

One of the best places to buy your souvenirs and compare well their prices. Most vendors accept dollars and euros. It is not an individual store, but small stands or shops.

Went here to enjoy the market, unfortunately all the stores seem to sell just about the exact same merchandise. The atmosphere here amongst the hustle of the city is nice and tranquil. A nice to place visit and relax for a while but not worth visiting here if you enjoy a proper market.

The market is very interesting. It has a wide range of local craft items. Jewellery, woodwork, knitting, crochet, lapis lazuli etc. Well worth a visit. Pick up some nice souvenirs.
