Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacan

The deep roots of the town's metallurgical tradition was one of our motives for visiting Santa Clara del Cobre, home to accomplished craftsmen that since pre-Columbian times have excelled in copper work. It's here that the influence of Vasco de Quiroga is still felt in the techniques that he introduced and which continue to be practiced. Adding in the area's natural attractions, we had more than sufficient reason for getting to know this Magical Town.
