An old, historical building that has been converted into several independent art galleries. There is some cool stuff, but it's pricey!

This is a collection of artists' work for sale. It you are looking for unusual art pieces (including furniture) and have money to spend, this would be great for you. Lots of original pieces here. Fantastic art works.

Stroll through and see the result of a town with a high population of artists can produce. The Art Walk once a month is also great fun and should not be missed.

About a 15 minute walk from El Jardin, this old textile factory space was converted into artists' studios, stores, and galleries [with a couple of restaurants] and is well worth a visit. Art ranges from 'world class' to 'affordable'...

A pleasant walk from the centre of town the guard at the front gate will call a taxi for your return. A wonderful space dedicated to the local art scene.

Definitely not a cheap art place, all stores offer a good quality art work, not the typical handcrafts that you'll find everywhere in the street, this is more sophisticated art. Not for shoppers with a budget.

Very nice, but too much. For me, like going to a shopping mall. If that's what you want, it's great. Some great historical pieces of machinery. Staff and venue is great... Just not that interesting for me. But the piece in the photo is worth finding, and learning about.
