  • Beautiful former convent turned into an artisan exposition. A must visit place in Patzcuaro.
  • It's classic
  • Inevitable by visiting Patzcuaro. The House of eleven patios proves a constant surprise. Here they sell beautiful specimens of local handicrafts, jewellery, clothes, cloths for the kitchen, much more. Perfect place to buy some typical gift to take to friends, or just to decorate their homes.

  • It is an old, large and spacious House. It environment is quiet, and its main attractive are the stores of crafts that is found there. There is a wide variety, and in particular they are works of wooden and fabric blanket. Ideal to spend the time, search memories or back a little at the time.
