  • A very nice village to walk through. There are not a lot of shops there but there is a good variety though. Nice woodworking shops.

  • Enjoyed meeting the artists and seeing their creations. I went in September, and unfortunately, it was extremely hot. The tiny shops did not air conditioning.

  • The Spanish Village Art Center in Balboa Park is one of our favorite places to visit. We love the vibrant shops and we enjoy visiting some of the studios in the center and watch the local artists create. When visiting there are many studios where you can find just about any masterpiece such as oil paintings, wood art, ceramic, basketry, & many more. There is also a refreshment cart where you can order a delicious lemonade, iced coffee or some other fresh drinks. Free parking is available and bathrooms as well. Art classes available (visit their website to register)
  • Wow, what an unexpected, very cool place! My boyfriend and I were visiting for the weekend and I wanted to visit Balboa Park. We randomly ran into the Spanish Village Art Center. I am not sure if it should be advertised more or if it is Balboa Parks best keep secret. My boyfriend is a glassblower and surprisingly there was another one there. We walked through like 8 times! Love it and the artisans are amazing.
