Taxco : Michelin's recommendations
Taxco is a listed historic monument and a real gem - one that could be in silver since the village owes its prosperity to its mines of that precious metal! Hugging the slopes of Mount Atachi 175km south of Mexico City, it boasts some magnificent sights, including the Church of Santa Prisca with its two high bell towers and the well-preserved colonial buildings in its historic centre boasting a lively and friendly atmosphere. This is one destination - very popular with tourists - that you won’t want to miss!
