Many shops at a good location

Just make sure when you go is outside the lunch break since most shops will be closed, it's about half a block from the main plaza.

In the officially designated "Pueblo Magico" - Magical Town of Patzcuaro, there is a place called 'Casa de los Once Patios' which was conditioned from a colonial hacienda into a showcase of artisans and their crafts. Great place for shopping. Don't be shy to barter. In some stores you might get to see the artisan at work. Be mindful of... More

Very colorful, but a bit crowded due to Day of the Dead people visiting Patzcuaro. I think that only 5 or 6 patios are actually in use now. First visited back in the early '80' - seemed to have more artisans back then. Still, it is worth the time to visit & right down the street is the basilica &... More

Theoriginal hacienda must have been an impressive set of structures. The name of the place actually refers to the # of patios the original house encompassed. Rooms and floors going off in all different directions hints at the grandeur this once massive homestead would have been. Visit the craft stores scattered in the rooms for very high quality, local craftsmanship.

Small area but with very high quality and variety of merchandise. Located on an incline but with steps and handicapped access I had not expected. A good shopping experience.

A very old building, from which only 5 of the original 11 patios are present. Somewhat beautiful, nothing special.

Unfortunately we went early in the morning and most of the shops were closed. The ones that were opened had a great selection of hand painted boxes and plates with beautiful flowers and most also had gold paint. They are expensive but worth every dollar.

Its was a very big house that was used in the older days but now its kind of like a store where you can see and buy lots of crafts from the older days
