This place worth the visit if you like art. They have a great selection of local artists. Also a great place if you are in the market to buy a piece. Wish we had time to spend more time here. They also have great restaurant and coffee shops there.

I am glad another visitor recommended this. We were surprised at the extensive selection of galleries with varied, high quality art. Also some interesting historic photos from when the building complex was a textile factory. The cafe in the back was a delightful break - my veggie sandwich was delicious.

we walked out to Fabrica La Aurora. It was about a 30 minutes walk from Centro, not difficult, and it was interesting to pop into some of the little stores along the way. The revitalization of the building is very nice, as is the collection of art- much of it quite highly priced, some not. Some of the stores sold... More

Something for pretty much everybody here. From custom crafted jewelry to galleries showing works by contemporary artists in a huge range of styles, some with a bit of an Hispanic bent. Great place to while away a couple of hours and think about redecorating!

I'm so happy a friend recommended we go here. It's a short cab ride (50 pesos) or about a 30 minute walk out of town. Great shopping and a cute cafe serving food, wine & beer or just coffee and a homemade pastry. A must see!

We came on the recommendation of our walking tour guide. It is a bit shy of one mile (1.3km) from El Jardin and the church. You need to navigate narrow sidewalks and exhaust from cars. If you have walking issues, I recommend a taxi. This old textile mile has been converted into a space for restaurants, antique shops and galleries.... More

Great atmoshere is a very open environment with small restaurants. Great place to shop for highly rated, Mexican artists work and an afternoon meandering and dinner at one of the intimate restaurants. This is a very large mall type of environment so plan to stay a few hours shopping.

We enjoyed our visit here on a cold and rainy day since it was mostly indoors and had lots of interesting shops and galleries of art and antiques. Only one cafe had indoor seating, but the food was good. Walk out to the main road to catch a taxi because it costs more if you have the entrance guard call... More
