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.

  • It is an old factory that is now a center of art. Cute gardens. There is a nice cafe inside. I recommend visiting it.

  • There is some beautiful art here, but no artists visibly​ working. In fact, it appeared that few artists were present(about three) on the day when it was advertised as open studio. Mostly there are upscale and pricey designer shops, lots for home furnishings, but no bargains. Several shops that advertise "antiquities"... wonderful to look at but careful what you touch.
  • Great and diverse art galley with many different types of art. What is unique is that each room has its own style with some even having the artist present working on new works. Definitely something worth experiencing
  • Whether you're actually shopping for fine art, home furnishings, or gifts, or just browsing for fun and ideas, this co-op is definitely worth a visit. Both the café at the back and the two restaurants at the front are good, too, so you can eat here, too (or at Geek & Coffee, behind the parking lot). The building itself, an old fabric factory, is historic and interesting. Walking distance from the main plaza, about 15 minutes.
  • Amazing art everywhere you look! All of the shops have distinct offerings and there's a section within the shops that show what it was like as a factory. After taking a stroll there's a small restaurant and coffee shop you can take a moment to have a snack and take it all in.
  • Great place to see art, although the grounds and gardens are art in themselves! First Saturday of each month is artwalk, great chance to mix and mingle and talk with the artists
