Colonial and silver towns: Visit Taxco, silver town

Visit Us

Visit Taxco, silver town

The most accessible of Mexico's colonial towns and one of the prettiest, Taxco is just an hour's drive from the capital along a scenic country road. Protected as a national monument, this colonial delight is a living museum of baroque architecture arranged along steep twisting streets.

Enjoy a guided tour of the higgledy piggledy collection of churches and historic buildings, connected by a picturesque warren of cobbled streets, and learn about the silver mining heritage still visible in the town's large number of jewellers and silver workshops.
