Fabrica La Aurora 


What used to be a textile factory, today houses canvases, sculptures and handcrafted products from great artists who live in San Miguel.

The Cultural Center of Art and Design, La Aurora, which has been revealed as one of the main attractions of the city of San Miguel de Allende, has a great reason for celebration: its first twelve years of history.

After being an important engine for the labor sector in the textile industry for nine decades, the walls of the Aurora Factory mutated to house canvases and handcrafted products in exchange for the looms that had already given it fame and recognition.

El Juguete Museum


The Museum has five rooms at its headquarters in San Miguel de Allende in which toys from various regions are exhibited. In recognition of their important work, the contribution of the Guanajuatensian artisans in the elaboration of popular toys is highlighted, among others, the cartonería, showing clay molds that are used in this artisan branch. 


Mojigangas of Hermes Arroyo


It is a giant puppet, marionette or sculpture. The head and bust are made of cardboard/papier mache and then mounted on a structure that supports the head/bust and gives it its height from 2 to 6 meters. A character dress goes over the bust and frame with a slit at the eye level of a dancer. The dancer steps inside with suspenders on. The dance´s legs then become the prude legs. They are danceable and also serve as a gigantic sculptor and/or decoration without a dancer inside.

The word mojiganga has a burlesque meaning... they are created with the intention of being farcical and exaggerated characters of humanity.
