4.4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
Visit Fabrica La Aurora, a historical textile factory housing an array of galleries, exhibitions, and shops. Peruse high-end homewares, prints of famous artworks, and exhibitions by local artists, all set among the remnants of heavy mill machinery. After walking around and taking in the vast quantity of wares, pop into one of the gourmet restaurants and cafes for a bite to eat and a rejuvenating cup of coffee. Due to the scale of this place, it's recommended that you leave a couple of hours to absorb everything, which may test the patience of some children.

  • Fabrica La Aurora is a nice place to see during the day. It has lots of beautiful galleries and art. 
  • THE place is very nice, there are many galleries that you have to visit, definitely not you can not buy any item in the yarn shop. We had that they invite us to eat at one side of the garden, everything was wonderful!

  • Fábricas is always a great place to visit. From the historic building itself to all the galleries, the location offers a ton to explore and enjoy. Be sure to check out Lourdes Rivera's gallery Galeria Manuk and Merry Calderoni's gallery.
  • Attended a Day of the Dead art opening at Fabrica la Aurora. The Fabrica was beautifully decorated throughout and the massive ofrenda set a festive mood. Art, accessory, and furniture galleries offered works by Mexican, US, and local artist. The staffs of the galleries were gracious. Locals helped create a warm and friendly atmosphere. Locals stated there is a monthly opening at the Fabrica. It is a great place to go shopping.
  • A must visit when in St Miguel. It's basically a mall of local artists. Two restaurants in here that you can go to. Most of the art is over priced but you will find booths that are affordable.
  • many artists with wonderful pieces. often i might say i am attracted to about 10 - 20% of what i see in a gallery but each studio had something of intrigue.
  • I went to this thinking this is not really my thing and yeah it's not really my thing. It had an interesting history going back 100 years. I am a backpacker who is never going to buy anything here but if at its your thing than worth checking out.
