Just 50 km west of Santiago lies a small village with a long tradition in pottery called Pomaire. It is famous for its brown-colored clay pottery handicraft, which has marked the identity of this place since it was founded in 1771. This tradition was inherited by the pre-Columbian Diaguita culture and was refined under the rule of the Inca Empire.
In Pomaire, it is possible to see the beautiful traditional work of families of craftsmen, and to find all types of figures made of clay, such as dishes, jugs, pots and an incredible range of characteristic “pottery pigs”, among other items. This diversity in handicraft has led this place to become a must for any family trip, without overlooking the incredible range of native cuisine and the monumental empanadas of 1 kilo, to be found in its typical restaurants.
