"The Silver City"
The name comes from Tlachco which means "place of the ballgame." It is located in northern Guerrero. Its elevation is over 6,000 feet and all the streets go up and down.
In 1528 a mining camp was settled which in 1570 became the Real one of the Mines of Taxco.
Taxco became one of the most important mining centers of New Spain.
Taxco has preserved a unique colonial aspect with its architecture and twisted streets that have no sidewalks.
It was William Spratling who brought the idea of using the local silver to design and sell jewelry right there in Taxco. Today there are over 500 silver shops in Taxco
I cannot find my old photos from Taxco.....Sorry
