Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • The tourist part of the city is reduced to very little, but definitely worth a visit for the Mexican flair that can find and for the beautiful copper artifacts.
