Then you are at the right place at the Sunday market in Tarabuco! Hundreds of people come from all over the area to sell their goods or to stock up on goods.
The Tarabuco culture is one of the oldest indigenous cultures of South America that has preserved its meaning and customs. The colorful market sells beautiful handicrafts and woven clothing with geometric patterns.
The market is the meeting point for the Yamparas Indians who come to sell their products. Walk around at your leisure and meet the friendly locals dressed in woven ponchos and decorative ‘Monteras’, leather hats modeled on the helmet of the Spanish Conquistadors. These people come from different indigenous groups and come together on Sundays, making the streets a special mix of traditional clothing styles. You will especially notice that their hats are considered very important.
