Patzcuaro region


Coffered Ceiling


The evangelization of our indigenous communities was carried out in a very peculiar way, the first evangelizers found out that through the paints, make them with natural dyes on the walls or ceilings of the chapels, call them coffered ceilings, were the best way to transmit the new religion arriving. In the communities that we will visit in this tour, we are going to find some of the most beautiful examples, starting our journey in a small town named Aranza where we will visit a living treasure, an artisan whose name is Oliva who makes the “rebozo de Patacua”, the rebozo is an artisan tradition that is transmitted from generation to generation. We will make a stop in Paracho, capital of the guitar to visit a guitar workshop and take the emblematic photo on the monumental guitar.

We continue to Pomacuarán, where we will visit a chapel which have a coffered ceiling also known as the sky of colors made by indigenous hands of the 16th century and its Huatapera that is still guarded by people from the community. We continue our journey to Nurio, which hides in its center a chapel and a temple decorated by indigenous hands and altarpieces covered in gold.
