Shopping

Try Asarti, which makes expensive export-quality alpaca clothing. Cheaper alpaca- and llama-wool chompas (sweaters) are found in the markets. Check out Sombreros Boston for handmade straw hats, and you can scour the artesanía stalls behind the main post office for inexpensive souvenirs. The city's largest and most modern mall with relatively upscale shops, Hupermall, opened in 2017 in la Recoleta.
