  • I've been in Mexico in ruins more interesting, by the proximity of Patcuaro, and if you have time available be sure to go. But don't expect anything too grand. I imagine that when it was descobeta should be just a pile of stones and who spent a lot of time rebuilding.

  • Last concentration pre-Columbian p ' urhépecha Center, a place that worth watching. The ruins are not in the best State, failure restoration, still is impressive size, pyramids in a semicircle, the view of Tzintzuntzan from the site and to the Lake of Pátzcuaro, vegetation. At the beginning of the visits planned you a short and entertaining video. Entry costs 50 pesos, very cheap for what it is. If you have opportunity, visit tzintzuntzan!

  • It is a very ancient town, with very interesting to know places, archaeological ruins and the Franciscan convent from the 16th century. They say that the olive trees were planted by Vasco de Quiroga.
