What You Can Expect
Arrive in the village, located in the foothills of the Andes mountains in Las Condes. Check out the village's national monument, La Iglesia San Vicente Ferrer, before moving on to peruse the town's more than fifty artisan shops.
Talk with the local artisans who staff the mud and straw shops. Learn about their artistic processes and how they use local materials, such as lapis lazuli, silver and Alpaca wool, to make their goods. Your guide will fill you in on the variety of cultural events, such as traditional dance, painting, theater and music, that take place in the community. When you've finished your shopping, relax under some nearby shade trees to watch the local people go about their days.
Visit the Parque de Las Esculturas back in Santiago for a walk through the scenic gardens. Admire the more than thirty sculptures, made by Chilean artists, that line the paths of this open air museum on the banks of the Río Mapocho.
Return to your Santiago hotel for drop-off around 4pm.
Were not told we would be taking public transportation which required us to climb numerous stairs. Artisan village was great shopping.
Despite the sculpture park was closed for maintenance, we manage to get in but not much to see. However, the guide recommend a nice restuarant for us which was good.
