Overview

The indigenous community of El Chile is a living example of the struggle for a people’s cultural and historical preservation.

Telares El Chile is a weaving workshop where a group of women have become ambassadors of one of the most representative community traditions. Here you will learn its history and you

can see and participate in the process of making its wide variety of products ranging from purses to backpacks, carpets and bedspreads. Also we walk in the community where other groups of artisans also produce fabrics with ancient techniques. The tour continues with a walk to the viewpoint of Cerro El Chile, where you will have a 360-degree view of the valley and surrounding mountains. Finally, enjoy a traditional lunch in the house of a local family, to have an inside look at their lifestyle.

On this tour it is possible to buy handicrafts directly to women who produce them.
