Witch is still a witch. Sells fake products with a great conversation. I realized that the products were false, but I let my nephew fall into the witty words of the witches. Bought bush thinking he was buying San Pedro's cactus. LOL

Such a different type of market. Its known as the witchs market. Lots of herbal medicine and mythological things. It does get busy so be aware of pickpockets. A must see.

Great fun, lots of well made alpaca items including great sweaters and ponchos. Lots of souveniers. Not much bargaining but not a lot of pushy venddvors either. But blocks and blocks of shops, travel agents, some restaurants and money changers.

It's best that you come to this area with a tour guide so they could explain to you what you're looking at. Beware: you will see mummy llama babies and fetuses.

we heard perhaps too much about the Brujas... it was a bit disappointed to enter into the shops and find the same items including coca liquors, alpaca fetuses, sexual experience enhancement accoutrements.

It might be! The market is run by natives and most likely they don’t observe Christmas!
