Landmark Tourist Spot
Watch the world pass by as you sip coffee in the city’s main plaza, known as Zocalo. On the north side sits Casa Borda, the most important non-religious building in the city. The house is now used for teaching and other activities. The rest of the plaza is surrounded by restaurants, bars, and silver shops. Cobbled streets lead off from the plaza, with the street of Cuauhtemoc containing many of the area’s best restaurants and bars. Del Arco street heads towards the popular shopping and market area. This spot provides a good place to embrace the relaxed culture of the local Mexican culture.

  • Wonderful place to visit!! A must go town!! Many restaurants bars and cafes to choose from, during the day you can visit the silver and jewelry shops and be amazed with the designs and the prices!! The trip is just two and a half hours from Mexico City.
  • A place to look back in time and try to figure it out how Mexico turned into what it's now. Lovely and delicious Mexican food available around this square.
  • Nice Mexican pueblito atmosphere.Trees decorated with pinhata stars and little aztec figurines.
  • Beautiful! The most beautiful city in mexico ive seen.
  • Great Place to taken most of what Taxco has to offer. Silver jeweler all around as well as Hotels, Restaurants, Santa Prisca Church and it is only a short walk to the Market
