Wow, this cute little artisan area has everything. Clothing, jewelry, pewter and shoes and much more. There are all sorts of beautiful shops with colorful paintings and they are all very nice. You will also find some very clean bathrooms in this area.

I love artesanías and although on the small side compared to other artesanía markets, it’s on the small side. I loved that it’s partially in like an alleyway. There are many different shops with different types of artwork. Very colorful.

Everything you can imagine made by local artisans. Take your time and wander through the one stop kind of shopping area.

There is an autopista that runs from Moroleon to Celaya, once in Celaya it is about one hour to San Miguel -- buses run regularly along both routes. Check the map and ask if you need specific details.
