In the utopia of Tata Vasco, each community was self-sustaining and had a trade, that’s why now each one is specialized in an activity and in this tour, to start, we will visit Capula, where we will meet the workshop of Juan Torres, a plastic artist recognized for his work in clay when creating the iconic “Catrinas”. We will continue towards Quiroga where the handmade wooden toy is worked and you can taste a taco of Carnitas (fried meat pork).
Our tour continues through Santa Fe de la Laguna, a Purépecha village that preserves its ancestral traditions since its foundation by Don Vasco de Quiroga and that has artisans who work the clay in their family environment, we will visit a pottery workshop and the Huatapera (the first hospital in town). We continue our journey to Oponguio, where we will have time to make lunch with the traditional master chef Esmeralda, with food from the region and made it at the moment having a view of the Patzcuaro Lake. And to finish, we continue to the distiller of mezcal named “Palomas Mensajeras” where we will be given an explanation of the production of mezcal in all its phases to finish with a tasting of its flavors.
