This is the municipal plaza, surrounded by restaurants and shops, and housing official offices. Perfect place to sit with some ice cream or a snack and plan your next bit of shopping. Beautiful all year round.

Beautiful square in the heart of Patzcuaro. The square contains a statue of Don Vasco Quiroga and is surrounded by hotels and restaurants.

We were here on Sunday and the place was alive with families and couples and people of all ages, enjoying the charming plaza and all that it has to offer. We got a delicious ice cream from a historical street vendor, and sat and watched an amazing performance of traditional local dance. So many other things going on. Make time... More

Colonial town square surrounded by good restaurants and cafes. Walkable town with low costs in the summer "off" season.

This is the quieter square lined with gift shops and restaurants. In the early evening people are sitting in cafes, eating ice cream, relaxing.

The four sides are lined with shops, restaurants and ice cream stands. Families bring children to play while... More

There is always something going on in the plaza. Dancing, music, performances, food vendors and more. I love spending time on "Plaza Grande."
