“An Art Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were able to visit Aurora for the first time the night of one of their art walks. With a fascinating crowd and a plethora of interesting and world class galleries it was quite a night. One of the highlights was meeting Peter Leventhal, an artist with roots back to the dynamic early days of NYC and the Paris of the 50's and 60's. It's simply a must-do in San Miguel and I could go back over and over and never be bored. Don't miss it.

“Astounding collection of art galleries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

The former (textile?) factory was reorganized as large collection of art galleries and artisan shops, with the relics of the past blended into the renovated interior design. Many of the galleries present a high class of visual art, in painting and sculpture, alongside furniture, clothing and jewelry. A true feast for the eye. Recommend to allow 2 - 4 hrs for visiting.

“Interesting Source for Artwork”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Great place to shop for original artwork. The styles are quite varied from traditional to modern to San Miguel specific. It is worth the trip.

“Great art Great setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Everyone who visits SMA should visit Fabrica La Aurora. It used to be a large fabric making factory that employed many workers for years. It is now a fabulous multitude of art, sculpture, lights, work shops, furniture, galleries and restaurants.
