  • It is a place that represents the legacy of Vasco de Quiroga, who taught various crafts to the Purépecha villages. In the House, you can find all of them, and in this most craftsman, making them there directly. It is worth visiting it. In addition to still side this the tabernacle also founded by Vasco de Quiroga, and on the street, the famous arches that appear in many photographs
