Taxco

Mexico’s silver city, with cobbled streets and colonial treasures to discover

This picturesque colonial city is known for its silver mines, cobbled streets and the pretty church of Santa Prisca. It’s a great place to buy silver jewelry direct from the artisans and there are unusual and attractive pieces available at good prices. Taxco lies around 2 1/2 hours from Mexico City and 3 1/2 hours from Acapulco. Day tours operate from either location and there are good bus services.
