Patzcuaro

Beautiful colonial town set back in time, center for artisan craftsmanship of textiles, pottery, wood, painting and copper using pre Hispanic methods. The town square is the only one in Mexico not anchored by a church or cathedral. The locals perform a dance mocking the arrival of the Spanish in period costumes worn by the descendants of the Purapecha Indians. Multiple corn stands serving the sweetest and largest kernels of corn. Lunch was unmatched anywhere.
