Santa Clara del Cobre, Patzcuaro

(4.4/5 based on 240 reviews on the web)
Named "the Magical Village" in 2010, Santa Clara del Cobre represents both a historic site and a place of amazing art and craft. Spend an afternoon sightseeing and learning about the Purépecha people, who lived here in the pre-Hispanic era, and were extremely advanced smiths. Go around the town and see the two plazas, decorated with copper on benches and roofs. Visit the two churches and enjoy going around many old-fashioned shops, some of which still have the forges running and accept visitors. Make sure you stop by the museum of copper, too. If you visit in late August, attend the festival of copper artistry, which also includes a competition.

  • Quaint, quiet, with a variety of foods. Ideal for families. Enter the workshops of copper and admire the work of artisans. No haggle prices. His work is more than valuable
