Just a 10 minute walk from the Jardin, a truly unique art and shopping experience await the visitor. Fabrica La Aurora was a textile factory for over 90 years. Today, this century old building has been reborn as an art and design center. While maintaining its original facade and structure, large open areas once filled with spindles and looms for making thread and weaving cloth have been transformed into some of the most outstanding art studios and galleries, antique showrooms, and interior design and specialty shops in San Miguel de Allende. The old factory provides the perfect setting for the more than 40 shops, art studios, galleries, restaurant, sushi bar and outdoor cafÈ. Spend a day or an hour in this historic atmosphere and discover another San Miguel de Allende.
