Taxco: Where history meets natural beauty

Welcome to Taxco!

Nestled in the mountains of the state of Guerrero, Taxco is a destination that shines with its colonial charm and natural landscapes. Known as the “City of Silver”, Taxco is famous for its Spanish colonial architecture, cobblestone streets, and for being one of the main centers of silversmithing in Mexico. However, beyond its impressive historical legacy, Taxco also offers natural wonders waiting to be discovered.

The historic center is a magical labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, white buildings with red-tiled roofs, and flower-filled balconies. The Parroquia de Santa Prisca, with its impressive baroque façade, adorned with intricate details and sculptures, is simply stunning. Upon entering, you will be amazed by its palatial interior. 

A visit to the Silver Market is a must. Here you will find everything from handcrafted jewelry to silver sculptures, all made by talented local artisans. The Saturday market is perfect for buying local products and enjoying authentic Taxqueño cuisine.

Throughout the year, Taxco celebrates various festivities and cultural events that reflect its deep roots and traditions, one of the most impressive of which is Holy Week, with processions that are true living works of art.
