Galería Artesanal San Francisco (San Francisco Handmade Gallery)
Here you'll find the most amazing and varied things but at a very high price at which you'll have to negotiate.
Don't forget to haggle!
It's an understatement to say that 'prices are negotiable' in the 'Gallery Artesanal San Francisco', which is a group of business premises located in the historic centre, near the Church 'Iglesia de San Francisco'. Due to the massive influx of tourists, prices are inflated at first, but haggling is permitted and it's even recommended. The advantage of this trading environment is that you'll find all the country's handicraft, including from remote regions, in the same place and that they also accept other currencies such as the Euro, the Argentinean peso and the dollar. The most interesting thing about this craft centre is that you can find varied and rare items like small religious antique cards, postcards of the Lima of yesteryear, coins and banknotes suitable for collectors, unique pieces of jewellery, artisan glass and mirror, which are all mixed on the premises with classic souvenirs of wood, clay and fabrics.
