Travel to Taxco—one of Mexico’s celebrated Pueblos Magicos—and be charmed by the beguiling mountain village’s narrow cobbled streets, white stucco buildings, and red-tiled roofs. Enjoy a delicious lunch, shop for silver goods, and visit the legend-wreathed Baroque cathedral of Santa Prisca.
Nestled among dramatic cliffs and verdant, mountainous hillsides, the colonial silver-mining town of Taxco in the Sierra Madres is a postcard-worthy destination with immaculately preserved architecture in a breathtaking setting. Admire the view from the Cristo statue overlooking the town, then set off on foot to explore its meandering alleys and cobblestone walkways.
Walk through quaint neighborhoods of white-washed homes with terracotta roofs to the Parish of Santa Prisca y San Sebastien. This towering cathedral is the site of a rumored miracle—during a stormy tempest while the church was being constructed, believers hold that a bolt of lightning struck the cupola to reveal glowing lights, holy texts, and the saint-like image of a woman who caught the next bolt of lightning in her hands.
Admire the gilded altarpieces and 17th-century paintings of the interior and the ornate, New Spanish Baroque façade, and then take a break from sightseeing for a traditional, 3-course Mexican lunch in town. After your meal, pass by the flowering balconies of centuries-old homes and pop into silver shops for jewelry and locally-made wares before your return trip to Acapulco.
