Patzcuaro and Santa Clara Copper Town

 

 

Patzcuaro, Michoacan is a small colonial town in the mountains of Mexico. Visiting Patzcuaro makes you feel like you take a step back in time with its 16th century churches and architecture from the Spanish colonial times. Because of its higher elevation it is significantly cooler than Ixtapa/Zihutanejo.

 

Tourists are recommended to bring a light sweater and pants. There are a number of local craft shops that sell locally made products of glass and wood. 

 

Copper Town is located near Patzcuaro (about 15 minutes away.) We will see copper factories & copper galleries/museums.

 

If you want to buy something they have C.O.D. The trip takes 3 hours one -way. This tour can either be a one day trip or an overnight trip for a more relaxed option.

Tzintzuntzan/Quiroga/Yunuen Island

 

Tzintzuntzan was the last major capital of the Purepecha Empire which reached its zenith in the   14th and 15th centuries. In Purepecha “Tzintzuntzan” means “place of many hummingbirds.” Tourist attractions include ruins of five ancient pyramids and an archeological museum of the Purepecha people.

 
Quirogia is known as the “Captial of ‘Las Carnitas’”. (“Carnitas” refers to fried pieces of pork cooked in copper ware—a traditional Mexican dish). Quiroga is home to a number of artisan craft shops including decorative wood work, glass blowing, and ceramic work (all painted by hand).

 

The Island of Yunuen, an indigenous/native community home to approximately 120 inhabitants, is one of five islands found in Patzcuaro Lake.
