La Aurora Factory

San Miguel de Allende

A benchmark for the textile industry for nine decades, the La Aurora Factory (Fábrica La Aurora) has become iconic in San Miguel de Allende when it comes to the arts. It is now a cultural center where great painters, sculptors, and designers bring the passageways to life with galleries, design and decor stores, antiques, jewelry, linens, and even gastronomical fare.

La Aurora is perfect for strolling around, browsing the open studios, and meeting artists up close, whether they are in the middle of brainstorming or adding furious brushstrokes to their latest work of art. Soon enough, you’ll find yourself immersed in one of the workshops they offer, which range anywhere from furniture restoration to textile production.

Nelly Lorenzo’s workshop, for example, is well-known for creating tapestries using a traditional loom from San Miguel de Allende, which enables her to create pieces from wool, cotton, ribbon, and sisal fiber. Nelly herself teaches classes on how to weave homemade tapestries.

The cultural center is also a benchmark for gastronomy, with four restaurants in an open-air layout. You can find everything from a café overlooking a duck pond, to a gourmet kitchen that also opens at night for dinner or drinks on the terrace.
