Museum should not be missed. Many of the shops off detailed demonstrations. If offered, accept a demo. The variety of product in the town is impressive.

Hammered copper artworks to enrich the soul made by hand by some of the most amazing metalsmiths and artisans in the country. Or more utilitarian objects as well ... but shipping these pieces costs more than the works themselves.

If you like copper, this is the place for you! You can watch demonstrations of copper being formed into pots and pans. Very interesting and the copper pieces are very reasonable

The town is very cute and keeps the characteristics of the towns that sorround Patzcuaro lake. The houses are white and red all along downtown. It has a main plaza where a lot of artisans expose their copper pieces. You can walk 2 blocks from downtown and go to the actual shops and see the artisans working on their pieces. Depending on the day of the week and season, one or more shops are open and you can have a little tour with explanation on how copper is worked and pieces decorated.
