WHAT SHOULD BE VISITED OUTSIDE OF PÁTZCUARO

 

Pátzcuaro enjoys easy access to different villages on the shores of the lake as well as in the interior of the state. The ideal plan is to use the city as “center of operations” and from here head out to get acquainted with other sites. The places that are named below are not all inclusive, but only those nearest to the city and are described based on routes and times departing from Pátzcuaro. So, if you are staying outside of Pátzcuaro, be sure to make the necessary adjustments or ask for more directions in the tourism office where you are staying.

 

 

TZURUMÚTARO

 

 

     At four Km. from Pátzcuaro. In this little town, whose names means “thorn place”, is possible to visit the agrarian museum, which displays a unique collection of agricultural implements and paints about the agrarian movement and to the history of corn.

 

 

TUPÁTARO

 

 

     Taking the road to Morelia via Tiripetío and taking the detour to Cuanajo, one arrives here. Its name refers to the variety of tule (a local reed) that is worked here. It is worth a visit to the beautiful 17th century church whose vault is made of decorated wood.

 

 

CUANAJO

 

 

     Immediately after Tupátaro is located Cuanajo (“place of frogs”), famous for the excellent quality and beautiful hand carved wooden furniture made here.
