Visit Taxco, silver town


Take a day trip to a charming colonial treasure built on silver wealth.

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.
