“It's worth the trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

I had only a few hours of site seeing time in Santiago, and I chose to go here to do my shopping, instead of Parque Arauco, which is a couple of short blocks from my hotel. Why? As an exchange student 22 years ago, I remember coming here and how serene it was, with so many different shops (locales) in one spot. I remembered correctly. So many stores, great tranquil setting, perfect to spend an afternoon shopping. And most of the things for sale are made in Chile (not China). Bonus: take the metro. It takes you practically to the entrance.

“Fantastic Assortment of Folkart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

This is the best handicraft market in Chile. The setting is lovely. You can spend an afternoon wandering around the many (and I mean a lot of )stalls of varied crafts . You can also get something to eat. You'll find all sorts of fine articles to bring home- pottery, woodcraft, woolens, painting etc..really high quality and reasonably priced. If you go to Santiago don't miss it.

“Take the metro, and walk for 5 minutes to Los Dominicos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

A very pleasant place to find locally-made gifts. I think there are like 100 artisans there, with a variety of goods to sell (from food/condiments to leather purses). Besides, it's very calm and relaxing due to it's location and how it's built. Really enjoyed the place.
