Where is it?


Patzcuaro is one of Mexico's most popular tourist destinations, especially during Semana Santa and Day of the Dead (the largest celebration in Mexico). The entire Lake Patzcuaro region is known for its stunning colonial architecture. The town center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wonderful folk arts are abundant, including the locally woven tablecloths and bedspreads sold all over town. Each pueblo surrounding the lake is known for distinct arts, such as masks, straw work, ceramics, copperware, and woven baskets and hats. Zihuatanejo and other beaches are about three and a half hours by car, Mexico City is five hours by bus, and Morelia, the capital of Michoacán, is just 45 minutes away by car.
