Fodor's Expert Review Mercado La Recova

La Serena Crafts Fodor's Choice

On the corner of Cienfuegos and Cantournet, this modern market housed in a pleasant neoclassical building sells dried fruits, handicrafts, and lapis lazuli jewelry. The Diaguita-style ceramics and the trinkets made from combarbalita, the locally mined marblelike rock, are particularly stunning. Don't forget to pick up some of the region's famous papayas, goat cheese, olive oil, and copao (a native fruit born from cacti).
