“Good selection of artesan crafts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Make sure you visit the upstairs stores on the side away from town - the embroidery shops. A cooperative of 70 women from a nearby town. The items are beautiful, each unique.

“Amazing crafts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

This architecturally fascinating warren of small shops, just off the Plaza Grande, offers some of the best and most reasonably priced crafts in Mexico. Many have skilled artisans on the premises, making the lovely things on display. Not to be missed.

“A must see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

La casa de los once patios is one of the top attractions in Patzcuaro. You will find all kind of handcraft from the region, and the house itself is a great place to visit. If you are visiting Patzcuaro, you certainly must go take a look at this place.

“I could go back here over and over”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

This is such a lovely old casa with beautiful plants, stairways and small shops that showcase the artisan creations of the P'urhepecha Indians in Patzcuaro. Great for shopping or just admiring the old architecture and art.

“Great place to sample quality handicrafts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

If you're lucky enough to visit Patzcuaro this is a must-see venue. The area around Patzcuaro has varied and quality handicrafts and these are best exposed at the Casa. The prices are upwards but then so is the quality. I'd say the copper work is especially rare and good, but so is the woodcarving. The Pur'hepecha (or Tarascans) people of the region are quite reserved (though parties can be raucous) and take great pride in their handicrafts and the natural beauty of the area. The vendors are relaxed and the site very pretty, it makes for a wonderful half-day visit, after which you can delve into some fine foods at the Plaza Quiroga.
