Alamos“Very fond memories of Taxco walking down the hills. Not so much walking up.

Taxco is the silversmith capital of the country and shops and markets abound with craftsmen and their wares. Truly artistic and awe inspiring.

It has a beautiful cathedral at the top of the hill and then we stroll and savor the long way down. Tasty restaurants, welcoming people, interesting art and culture AND about that rotisserie chicken…. Great stop.”
