“Do not miss this art gallery and shops complex”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is a fantastic art complex with about 50 galleries and stores in an old textile mill building. If you're visiting San Miguel de Allende don't miss it. The building alone is amazing, old stone and ancient weaving machines still left around, unmovable. Great ambiance, several restaurants, all good, very nice upscale stores and high end (and affordable) good artwork...all under one roof. Several outdoor spaces to relax, even a duck pond.

“Dining at the Fabrica”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Excellent food and great service is always what you receive at the Fabrica. Then, stroll through the various shops and galleries for exciting finds, and a bit of a history lesson.

“An Art Surprise”
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”
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”
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.
