Went there by walking and hitchhiking from Pisco Elqui. It's about 10km from Pisco Elqui in a very quiet place! Atmosphere and the small shops are lovely and good for a little hangout. Shops don't seem to be opened permanently, so ask beforehand if more...More

This market is a relaxing place to walk around and a great place to buy souvenirs from actual artisans. I found some beautiful jewelry (ring and matching earrings) and a mosaic key holder. They also have lots of natural products and clothing.
