Taxco Things to Do

    There are many churches in Taxco, but the main chuch in the Zocalo is well worth a visit. It has been under repair for the last couple years. The outside of the church is getting a facelift. However the interior of the church is spectacular.

    When in Taxco the main thing to do is shop for silver. Bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings, virtually anything you can think of can be found in silver form in Taxco. Somethings to rememer is that the price is often negotiable and always make sure the piece is stamped with a .925 which insures it actaully has silver content.

    The beautiful rose coloured Church of Santa Prisca dominates the centre of Taxco. When French prospector Joseph de la Borda discovered a rich silver deposit in Taxco he commissioned the seven year long (1751-1758) construction of the Parish of Santa Prisca. This gave rise to the saying: "God gives to Borda, Borda gives to God". The great cost of its elaborate construction and interior decoration left Borda nearly broke. However, what was left behind is a treasure of baroque architecture

    Cafe Sasha is one of the coolest places to just hang out. They serve Mexican, vegetarian, and other dishes that are pretty good. The place is run by Sacha and Javier, who were travellers themselves so they have a collection of art around the place collected around the world. This is one of the best places to meet some locals and get a good vibe for the city of Taxco.

    Favorite thing: Taxco became North Americas first mining town when silver was discover in 1524. Although the supply of silver is not as great, Taxco has become a silver artisan town. Some of the things that these people do with the silver are amazing. More than 300 shops cater to the silver shopper. The Mercado de Plata, just behind the Flecha Roja station, is where locals buy their silver so you can probably get it cheaper there. Make sure that any silver that you buy has the official ".925" stamp on the side to indicate that it's genuine silver.
