My favorite place to shop in San Miguel. I could have bought everything. A great place to spend a morning or afternoon.

This is a very pleasant place to spend an afternoon. Whether it's browsing the shops and galleries, grabbing a bite at one of the cafes or having a full-scale meal at one of the restaurants, you are surrounded by beauty. It is a relaxing, creative environment. Highly recommended!

This was lovely to walk through but not brilliant. There seems to be a lack of direction with many of the "galleries." They are more like shopping spaces versus ART galleries and displays.

A former textile factory turned into an incredible art space. It is peaceful, beautiful with wonderful artwork to view. Some of the studios are high end gift stores. There are a few nice places to eat.

The Fabrica is an old mill that now houses many artists and antique dealers. We took a cab and walked back into the centro. There are many varieties of art, and there's even a cafe. There's something for everyone's taste, you can get it shipped home, and prices range from affordable to very expensive. A fun visit.

Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. You can get a general idea of what you can find in the area. I recommend going to the antique stores you can fond on the way to Dolores hidalgo, you will need a car and at least half a day but you will be able to find good pieces... More

They have a bunch of galleries and furniture/design stores in here. The buildings are rambling and cool looking, but stuff is way overpriced. There is an art walk once a month, but some of the same stuff I saw 5 years ago.
