Excellent place to go for a stroll through the shops. Beautiful art, beautiful designers of jewelry, clothing, antiques along with a a couple of places to eat lunch, drink coffee etc while taking a break. It's quite expansive and on our visit we spent 4 hours there. I can imagine people living in SMA purchasing items for their homes here.... More

This place is big and there is a lot to see! You can also have a nice lunch at the cafe while you're there. Easily something for everyone.

A fascinating repurposing of an old factory. Some great shops and galleries. A short taxi ride from the Centro.

If you enjoy art, this is a great place to visit in San Miguel. There is an abundance of art galleries featuring a wide variety of art. Everyone we met was friendly & helpful. You can also schedule art classes, including sculpture. In addition, the non-art shops have very nice and mostly non-touristy items for sale. Nice outdoor cafe. Worth... More

We had a fun few hours walking around this place. There are many stores and galleries, people are gracious in all of them, and the work and goods were interesting to see.

Lots on nice galleries and shops, a good restaurant at the entrance, overall a nice place to while away a few hours and find unusual artwork and ornaments.

I was skeptical when Aurora opened a number of years ago, but now I'm a fan. While I think the range of artists is not what it might be, the galleries located here are clearly committed to showing high-end artwork you won't likely find in the more folk-oriented locations around town. Don't miss the wonderful bookstore--and if art isn't your... More
