If you like copper, this is heaven. Explore many of the stores, because in the back of several there are craftsmen working with the copper, making items while you watch.

The best place to visit is the Copper museum where copper-smiths demonstrate their skills. Like so many tourist towns, every shop sells copper-ware (apart from the butcher's!).

Shopped and bought a beautiful round copper table top! Now, to design a base... Maybe in iron? Cantera?

It was a beautiful drive through the countryside from Patzcuaro to the town center where parking was easy, the folks friendly and LOTS and LOTS of amazing copper artisans. Don't miss the copper museum and displays.

Museum should not be missed. Many of the shops off detailed demonstrations. If offered, accept a demo. The variety of product in the town is impressive.

Hammered copper artworks to enrich the soul made by hand by some of the most amazing metalsmiths and artisans in the country. Or more utilitarian objects as well ... but shipping these pieces costs more than the works themselves.

If you like copper, this is the place for you! You can watch demonstrations of copper being formed into pots and pans. Very interesting and the copper pieces are very reasonable

I can't answer the part about driving there, but Santa Clara del Cobre is a sleepy little village and very safe. It is very close to Patzcuaro and easy to get there by cab. Make sure that you get to see the demonstration... More
