Fabrica La Aurora, San Miguel de Allende

4.6
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.

  • Quite an amazing collection of studios for artists and dealers. Mostly? dealers. Easy taxi ride from town, relatively easy walk from the main square around the church (hah! You say. THE church? I mean the principal church by the largest square.) I was traveling w a serious artist, she quite liked it. I am a peasant when it comes to art, I liked it too. There are a couple of nice-looking cafes here, one quite informal and the other not quite so much. I didn't engage either one, so can't comment on their menus. To be complete, nice restrooms, too. Four stars only because 5 means unbelievable. Grade inflation is rampant. 4 stars means very very nice. Don't miss it.
  • A large art gallery with many artisans ranging from pedestrian ordinary to spectacular creativity. The clientele are mainly over-dressed gringos with money burning holes in their pockets which I found kind of pretentious. This is an expensive place.
  • Fabrica la Aurora is a must visit when in San Miguel de Allende. Sooooo many talented artists and creative galleries to visit. One of the best ones to visit is the James Harvey Artist Gallery, such a unique collection of talent. There are several cafes where you can take a break and continue your adventure. Have fun!!!!!!1
  • Great variety of art and artifacts large and small. Tranquil place to spend an afternoon. Definitely recommend.
  • Especially good if you want to fill a house with interesting stuff. Some tiring contemporary art and decent cafes to compensate.
