We will leave from Morelia so that they can get to know one of the most emblematic magical towns of the Michoacan lands, Pátzcuaro which when starting the tour we will visit Quiroga, an ideal town where you can make handicraft purchases to visit later Tzintzuntzan, the former capital of the Purépecha empire. Visit to the Franciscan temple, atrium of olive trees and an open chapel.<br>We will visit Janitzio by boat, and in Janitzio, at its highest part, we will be able to visit the statue dedicated to the great national hero Don José María Morelos y Pavón, in which time will be given to visit commercial and gastronomy venues.<br>Returning we will move to Pátzcuaro, where they will be given time for food (not included), then we will visit the city of Pátzcuaro where we will see the Basilica of Our Lady of Health, the Museum of Popular Arts and Industries, the Former College of the Society of Jesus, the Temple of the Tabernacle, the House of the Eleven Patios, among other attractions of Pátzcuaro.

This museum offers a glimpse at the entire culture of the Purepecha including crafts, cooking and holograms showing copper working and guitar making. It is a must see for the visitor to Patzcuaro.

Even if this is not your first visit to Pátzcuaro and towns nearby. Visit this digital museum ,will give you an interesting guide with top quality HD videos and photographs. They have a 360 projection hall, they display videos on main festivities and places you should not miss. I know this area and culture very well, and I must admit I am impressed. Don´t miss it¡

This cultural center is an impressive place, I've so much more appreciation about the P'urhépecha Culture. I have a better perspective of their history and the legacy of Don Vasco, who was a social reformer, and humanist educator. With him at their side, the Indians of this region were able to gather their strength, and expand their talents. Bravo to the Founders & Managers of this Museum for creating a quality place where one can learn history with joy! All their interactive exhibits are tops! You can even e-mail to yourself any article/exhibit. I e-mailed the food recipes!

The focus of this museum is the dedication of Don Vasco de Quiroga to the Purepecha people. It tells the story of their culture with respect, and illustrates their foods, crafts, and work with innovative interactive exhibits.
