Los Dominicos

At the very last metro stop on the red line in Las Condes is the “village” of Los Dominicos. There’s a historic church, Iglesia de San Vicente Ferrer, built in 1809. It’s more commonly known as Iglesia de Los Dominicos and played an integral part in Chilean independence. It was closed for renovation during my visit.

Next to the church is Centro Artesanal Los Dominicos. It was established in 1980 as a cultural park to sell Chilean handmade crafts and goods. If the Chileans make it, you can find it here – anything from copper to pottery to jewelry to leather.

The center is set up like a small traditional village. There are also a few restaurants serving traditional Chilean cuisine. The market is open from 10:30am-7pm and closed on Mondays.
