“Pátzcuaro is a very special place. Our daughter Justine Bell was married here to Michoacán native Guillermo Trejo. The lovely colonial setting was perfect for their special day.

Pátzcuaro has worked hard retaining its indigenous colonial look. Building retain their old world charm and somehow that context seeps into the souls that inhabit the city. The marketplace is authentic. The squares are delightful.

Pátzcuaro is a favorite for many people. Tourists come here to find the heart of Mexican soul.”
