  • If you're going to San Diego is a must-see place, encompasses beautiful buildings, live music including a bagpiper, wooded parks, museums such as the Museum of man in a very well preserved colonial building that had to be a church that has a tower where is accessible by paying a ticket, that since there is seen throughout the city, a botanical garden, a giant swimming pool filled with ducks, surrounded by beautiful gardens, a very nice source and lots of variety entertainment.

  • You can tell why this place holds a certain appeal with Americans: it is, indeed, very much like a picture of a “European” Village. However, as a European, the atmosphere here feels a little pretentious and the surroundings... inauthentic. Feels to me as though you’re walking around a Disneyland version of a Spanish coastal Touristic district. Only stopped by here briefly but it didn’t quite capture my heart the way I had hoped after hearing about it. Still enjoyed seeing the local artwork and artists’ studios though, that’s always a pleasure
  • I LOVED this place! Everything is so colorful The tiles and houses are so colorful that beings joy just looking at them ✔ The shops belongs to artists in San Diego and everything is made by them ✔ There are chairs and tables if you like to sit down ✔ There is also a coffee shop and the coffee is really good ✔ Pets are allowed
  • Cute art village to walk through near the zoo. Don't miss it!
  • The best part of Balboa Park. Amazing art galleries. Try the small coffee shop.
  • I love the unique beauty of this Spanish style Village. What a wonderful place to have art studios. My mom used to love to come here when she lived in San Diego.
