  • Fantastic place for one of a kind gifts. The laquer ware is not to be missed.
  • Loved this place with lots of little artisan shops. The building itself is a 2-story colonial, built around 11 patios and courtyards which in turn are lined with individual shops and studios of many different artisans. I purchased some textiles as well as a gold leafed copper bowl. Patzcuaro is all about artisans and this is a great place to see a variety of them.
