A 15 minute walk from the main drag, you'll see a lot of stores selling stuff along the way. Once you get here, it's beautiful, airy, bright place filled with pretty and unique art and home deco.
Know that - many of these pieces are relatively very expensive and many are too big to transport around unless you drove here. I don't know if the vendors ship/transport stuff back to your home.
So if youre not actively looking to buy art-sy pieces and you're very time crunched, you could skip it.

We spent an afternoon wandering through this spacious, lovely collection of galleries and stopped for coffee at the outdoor cafe. So much to see, fine quality art and furnishings in a lovely reclaimed setting. We walked here from the Jardin, via the food and craft market and beyond. Taxis drop people here frequently so we caught a taxi back. A must-see for art lovers visiting SMA.

This converted textile factory houses a large assortment of contemporary art galleries. There are 2 cafes inside as well. Makes for a lovely afternoon. It's an easy flat 20 minute walk from the Jardin or take a cab.

Great place for art and antique lovers to spend an afternoon. Be sure to visit Kelley Vandiver's gallery while you are there !

The building(s) were part of a fabric factory in the early 1900s. They have done a wonderful job of keeping the history and architecture of the place while creating a mecca for artists. You wander from room to room and see every type of art, and with a range of prices. The locally made furniture in one of the shops is amazing. I had so much fun I wanted to buy a house in SMA just so I could decorate it with finds from the Fabrica la Aurora! There are two restaurants on site. The outdoor setting of one is awesome.
