Historical capital of at least one of the Purehpichan kingdoms whose magnificent Yacatas have been recovered despite the destruction under the Spanish conquest.
Drive over or take a bus from Patzcuaro or Quiroga.
Walking works fine.
The Yacatas for a small charge. Visit the historic church and convent (though a home to monks) that is being restored for an even smaller charge. The markets are known for fascinating cement sculptures, Christmas decorations and reed woven goods.
The Night of the Dead around November 2 is quite busy and the cemeteries (pantheons) are magnificently dressed up in marigolds and attended to by families.
