"High end art and furniture" Top 5 Page for this destination Closed Shops Tip by Agraichen

Closed Shops, Loreto: 5 reviews and 7 photos

Unfortunately the economy caught up with the Galeria and it has closed it's doors.

Galeria is not as crowded as many of the "home furnishing" shops in Loreto. The proprietor, Hector Torres Ybanez spent a number of years with a shop in San Francisco, CA before settling back in his home country of Mexico.

The items carried are all top quality and quite unique. Unlike the typical shops with porcelin artifacts, or wrought iron furniture, Hector has very unique pieces. I just purchased a table for my entry that is made to look like an antique door with a wooden ox yoke for the legs and cross piece to hold the top.

What to buy: If you're looking for high end furniture, this is the place. Beautifully crafted and very well made the dining room furniture is top notch. Expensive, but much better made than much of what you'll see in furniture stores.

What to pay: Prices are fair, but you're purchasing top quality furniture and household items so although less than what might be paid in the US, the prices are higher than what you might first expect. But you get what you pay for.

Address: Callejon "El Pueblito" S/N Local #6
Directions: Located between Salvatere and Benito Juarez, just off of Independencia this is a bit "out of the way" but easy to find once you know where it is located. Head toward the Malecon on Salvatere, left on Independencia and then take the first right.
