The clay is extracted by hand near the villages of San José de Gracia and Patamban, the only places in the world where these pineapples are made. We loved so many of them - but could only... More

this place is endless, every corner you turn has wonderful surprises in store. There is so much to look at from some of the most talented artists and artisans in the country. Upstairs are shops also that you can purchase items from all the surrounding towns that specialize in their own arts such as pottery, weaving, Catrina dolls....a MUST see!
