We were astonished at the quality and prices of the copper manufactured here. Kitchen sinks, bar sinks, bathroom sinks and hoods, all in copper, were featured. Also jewelry. Buy it and ship it home, as the quality and price invite a remodeling job at home.

Many people don't realize that Santa Clara del Cobre and Tasco don't mine their minerals. It is all imported. None the less it is a great place to buy copper items. They are about 10-25% cheaper in the street. Ask around first before you make a purchase. Everyone has just about the same handcrafts. Beautiful hand painted earrings of copper... More

As Taxco specializes in silver, Santa Clara del Cobre specializes in copper, and a spectacular job it does too. You can find anything from cheap copper trinkets on the street to spectacular copper artwork and utility products (pots, pans, etc.) in private stores and galleries. The town's cool, mountain setting is great, and it's just a 15-minute drive to the... More

Take the time to visit this beautiful town and the copper museum. It's only 20 minutes by cab from Patzcuaro.

This was not really worth a trip because you can see everything that you see for sale in Santa Clara can also be bought in Patzcuaro for just about the same price. If you are bored one day, it is a pleasant trip.

Didn't stay in the town but it's a nice drive from Patzcuaro and great place to pick up some copper pieces. Many shops and choices.

Get ready to 'shop till you drop' in this beautiful colonial town! Wonderful copper pieces to add to any decor in your home. Many of the design stores ship everywhere, which is a bonus if you already are loaded with many purchases from the wonderful country of Mexico. The town is not large and the stores are all centered in... More

Santa Clara itself is not the most beautiful town, but the real reason my wife and I went was to see copper crafts and the artisans who make these crafts. We visited many shops as well as visited an artisan that had approx. 10 workers busy making copper pieces. We also purchased some items at what I consider very reasonable... More
