This is our second time here, we love it. Take a leisurely stroll from one gallery to an artist's studio where you can watch art coming to life. Spend a couple of hours appreciating many different styles and techniques, you can also find antiques and take with knowledgeable people.

A cotton manufacturing plant turned into an expansive art gallery. WE ate at the restaurant at the end of the covered porch and had one of the best burgers ever. Most of the art was not appealing to me because I prefer traditional but I did find the Fabrica enjoyable. I would gladly return (hopefully around lunchtime)

This attraction is nearby, an is an easy walk from the historic centro. It was originally a factory, forget what kind, and is now a gorgeous, modern antiques venue. The grounds are as gorgeous as the interior. I believe this attraction did not charge an entry fee. Enjoy!

You will find some pretty outstanding art pieces here- very eclectic. Really prices from low to moderate, but rarely obscene. You can spend your whole day here, relaxing. Also several cute breakfast/lunch places to enjoy. Another nice surprise is the Pineda Covalin (art silk scarf) store.

There is usually a First Friday of the month art walk here every month - the artist attend, serving wine or other beverages - read tequila- ready to answer your questions. There are no pressure for sales - it is a welcoming experience. Many of the artist are from Mexico, some are x-pats now living in San Miguel.
