What once was a textile factory, today houses canvases, sculptures and handmade products of great artists who live in San Miguel de Allende.

After having been for nine decades an important factory in the textile industry, the walls of the Aurora Factory mutated to house, canvases and handicraft products in the place of the looms that had already given it fame and recognition.

There is no fee to enter the complex. We were free to roam about, exploring the various galleries. All of the art was for sale, and several of the galleries also included the artists' workshops.

Here are some of the photos we took at the Fabrica la Aurora.

Among the art, we found reminders of the factory's past.

Before leaving, we enjoyed lunch at oe of the three restaurants onsite. All in all, a wonderful way to spend the day in San Miguel de Allende.
