Plaza de Ponchos

This world-renowned indigenous handicrafts market is truly a must-see attraction. Though the market operates all week, Saturdays are the day when all the vendors come out, and the stalls of brightly colored artesanías overflow into the surrounding streets. The indigenous population of Otavalo has thrived from the international success of their wool and cotton textiles, as well as their folkloric music. In fact, you may have seen vendors and musicians from Otavalo in your city, no matter what part of the world you live in!
