We were pleased to visit the incredible gallery and home at Galeria Atotonilco, San Miguel de Allende in October, 2013. We happened to visit on the day the BBC was filming the house for Extreme Homes and after the visit we agreed, it's extremely interesting and beautiful. When we drove up the owners Mayer Shacter and his wife Susan Page were out in the rolling landscape with the film crew having lunch under the shade of an old Mesquite tree. Mayer greeted us in the gallery a few minutes later and took us on a trip of Mexican art history with authentic pieces for examples. One drawer featured over 200 serapes dating from 1875 forward, most of them priceless. We were lucky the day we visited and had a personal tour of Shacter and Page's beautiful home. Since you must make an appointment to visit maybe you'll be as lucky and get to see one of the great galleries of Mexico and the world. And afterwards, get Mayer to point out Nirvana restaurant just behind his home and have a lovely lunch or dinner.
