Santiago, Chile - Los Dominicos
The Pueblito Los Dominicos is a must visit in Santiago, Chile. It's a really nice public park and outdoor shopping mall where you can buy original Chilean handcrafts. They have really beautiful hand made pieces from all types of raw materials and textiles.
There are some restaurants and coffee places on site which means you can stay for a while. It's easily accessible by metro, very straight forward the metro exit is “Los Dominicos”. From there, it’s less than 10 minutes walking distance to the main entrance. It will be hard to resist the temptation, so make sure you bring some some cash. Most of the little stores don’t accept credit cards and we ended leaving empty handed because of that. They have a ATM machine onsite but we didn’t trust it. So we returned to the city and took out money from the bank, only to return the next day.
Anyway, even if you are not planning to buy anything, it’s still a nice touristic place to visit ! Very authentic and traditional architecture-village style and good empanadas !
