About San Antonio Arrazola

San Antonio Arrazola is located 10 km (6 miles) from the road to Zaachila. Commonly known as "Arrazola", famous for the manufacture of alebrijes: Mexican craftsmanship created by Manuel Jiménez. It is made with different types of paper or wood carved and painted with cheerful and vibrant colors, represented by jaguars, tigers, sirens, cats and nahuales. Although today can be elaborated with several techniques, this community stands out for using wood carving, a knowledge transmitted from generation to generation. Visit the Museum - Workshop of Angelico Jiménez, grandson of Don Manuel, to appreciate or acquire some of these pieces of art.
