Its cultural wealth goes back to its foundation in 1300 by the "Purépecha" indigenous community and is consolidated with being declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site.

Visit the "Basílica de Nuestra Señora de la Salud" (one of the main Churches), built in the 16th century and where late Bishop Don Vasco de Quiroga rests. Or if you prefer, get in touch with indigenous talent at the "Museo de Artes e Industrias Populares (Popular Arts Museum)", where you'll find countless artisan delights.

The "Casa de la Cultura (the House of Culture)" is also a fascinating door to the past; built in the 17th century for the Church members brought from Spain by Pátzcuaro's first Bishop Don Vasco de Quiroga.

Or perhaps simply walk around the city's main square named after such figure, where various restaurants offer a wide range of regional, Mexican and International cuisine.
