Wonderful art galleries and studios. Paintings, crafts, antiques and everything at the Fabrica is interesting. Have been going there for 10 years and it gets better and better. An easy cab or walk to the Centro. Immaculately clean.

A short walk from our hotel in the Guadalupe district. A multitude of decorating, art, clothing and jewelry shops in a beautifully repurposed building. All very attractive and tempting! On site cafe to refresh and to think about your purchases!
