What to Expect
Explore the quaint handicrafts village of Los Dominicos in the heritage zone of Santiago on a full-day tour to find interesting crafts made by the indigenous people.
Located next to the National Monument of La Iglesia San Vicente Ferrer, the village boasts about 50 shops constructed from mud and straw, selling a variety of crafts made from natural materials, such as leather, wood, straw, silver, and lapis lazuli.
Watch as the craftspeople transform baked mud, roots, and metal into artistic pieces, and hear about the cultural events, including theater, music, painting, and traditional dance that occur year-round in the community.
Next, stroll through the leafy Parque de Las Esculturas on the north side of the Mapocho River. The open-air museum features about 30 permanent sculptures by noted Chilean artists. Admire the artwork as you wander the park, or retire to a bench to appreciate the greenery in the midst of an urban landscape. Your guide will return you to your hotel in Santiago by 16:00.
