Project Description

Galeria San Francisco

Galeria San Francisco is located upstairs at Number 1 Calle San Francisco in the historic center of San Miguel de Allende.  Located on the corner of San Francisco and Relox, it faces the Jardin, and is only a few steps from the magnificent Parroquia of San Miguel Archangel.  This church is the most important religious edifice in the city, and has become a symbol of the city San Miguel de Allende, recently designated a Unesco World Heritage Site. The phone number for the Gallery is: 415-152-0552

Number 1, San Francisco has been in the Liceaga family for over 400 years, and originally served as a respite for the people who worked for the mining companies transporting minerals. They would come there to rest and refresh their horses after their long journey. Later, it became the private residence of the Liceaga family, who lived in the mansion for many years. About 18 years ago, the present owner and architect, Fernando Liceaga, renovated and rebuilt the property, retaining its historical character. The building is listed the historical register in San Miguel de Allende.

The Gallery still retains some of the original wall paintings that decorated this historic building.

The opening of Galeria San Francisco has been a long time dream of its owner and artist, Susan Santiago, who moved to San Miguel to focus full time on her painting. The artists currently represented in her gallery reflect the diverse creative talent that is present in San Miguel.
