Known for its copper, there are many stores selling products made of copper. When we were there on Palm Sunday the square was also full of stalls selling a range of products. Also saw the parade bringing the plants etc to the church.

Took a stop here on our tour of many small towns in the Patzcuaro area. Our tour guide took us into one shop where the back part was a workshop and we got to see how the copper items are made. Very Enjoyable!
