Very Beautiful Items for Sale such as furniture and paintings but unfortunately too deep for my pockets! On the flipside great to look at!

Great place to check on not only local art, but art from artists from different countries that just fell in love ans stayed in San Miguel. Variety in style, prices, sizes and everything. Service is good, close location to downtown (walking distance if you are in the mood for a walk) and there is a little coffee shop just to... More

Great place to visit the old textile factory. While there have a great lunch at the FOOD FACTORY. Excellent soups, sandwiches, and salads. Grampa's is next door and services good hamburgers. Both are located in the Complex.

I was surprised how big Fabrica La Aurora was. We found a number of beautiful things to decorate our house. I can highly recommend it. Also, the Cafe had good food and drinks! Some stores were closed mid-week, but we returned on the weekend and it was bustling.

Take the easy walk from Centro to see remains of some of SMA's early industrial history, now an art, design, retail and food destination. This little side trip is well worth the time as there are wonderful photographs along the hallways showing the workers and the workings of the fabric factory that ran and employed many here for nearly 90...

A beautiful setting full of well-appointed studios. However, majority of the art is really, really expensive. It is a nice place to visit, but be prepared to lay down some serious pesos if you want to buy anything. Or just go to view the art!

Very original artifacts. From authentic old hacienda style antiques to hiper modern art from very good mexican and world famous artists. You will find unique furnitures / patio decor / plants / clothing / restaurants in the middle of old fabric factory floors, including machinery. Worth to see the project of recycling of a 19th Century factory into a hiper... More

The development makes sense: an old textile manufacturing site gone bankrupt. The place is nice and well organized. But the art was not very attractive and the prices too high.
