About Tzintzuntzan

It was the capital of the Purépecha territory from the twelfth century and still retains many traditions, customs and language since that time, including dance paloteros. We recommend you visit the Franciscan monastery whose atrium sixteenth century, they say, still retains the olive trees planted by Don Vasco de Quiroga.
Take a trip to Las Yácatas since pre-Hispanic constructions are very close by.
