Taxco de Alarcon, Guerrero

On this trip we set out to explore Guerrero's only Magical Town. We were first attracted by its traditional silversmithing, although we knew that it offered much more than just that: Taxco was one of the Spanish Viceroyalty's most prosperous mining cities and so conserves interesting architectural jewels; its narrow cobbled streets were witness to many notable personalities such as explorer Alexander Von Humboldt, dramatist Juan Ruiz de Alarcon, and collector William Spratling.
