A tradition dating back to the city's origins as a colonial mining capital, silver is the focal point of Taxco shopping, and indeed the most popular tourist pursuit. All around the picturesque town you'll find sellers of silver finery, from open air markets to metal workshops to high end boutiques.

This 18th-century church, built with funds provided by silver tycoon José de la Borda, is the centerpiece of the town's main square.
I'm always amaze on the level of intricacy the churches in Latino America. We couldnt walk a round the inside of the church, we just made it to the entrance. Go and visit beautiful architecture. The only thing that might be annoying is the supposed tourist guides that are pushy but some of the free info they're willing to share as u walk towards the entrance of the church. The one thing i wish would be access to the bell tower as a guided tour that would really cool

Visited Taxco from Mexico City with Mexcity Tours. We had an hour and half to explore on our own the area of the Zocalo. What a lovely place to enjoy. The Zocalo is surrounded by many shops, Santa Prisca Church and the very interesting winding narrow roads going up to the hills filled with vendors selling their wares, food and souvenirs. It is even fun to watch all the vehicules trying to manoevre down those narrow winding roads leading to main circle around the Zocalo. In the Zocalo there is alot of things going on. Now the Zocalo is not very big-no where near the size of Mexico City or Acapulco. But it is very pretty and quaint. A lot of people just sitting around on the benches, with some vendors walking around selling souvenirs or selling snacks like churros. There was even going on while we were there a few shows in the square-a folkloric dance group and a fashion show of some comic book characters

I somehow managed to avoid setting foot in a single silver shop during my stay in Taxco - this attraction is much more to my liking. Arrived right as it was opening and got a great tour in English by a sweet matron. It was amusing to hear her describing some of the ghastlier chapters in the house's history. I was also really intrigued by its incarnation after it was purchased by Señor Figueroa - lots of signed photos of American celebs - Bette Davis, Elvis, a youngish Richard Nixon (!) who passed through on their way to Acapulco back in the day. I would like to know more about this man who preserved the house while decking it out with art and a tiled bar from whence he served visitors a complimentary glass of tequila after he turned it into a museum. (Alas the tradition did not survive him) I really like this kind of museum, where the former occupants books of detective stories and the like are shelved alongside more rarified volumes. I could almost imagine that that nifty triptych medicine cabinet contained 60s era powders and pills!

We offer a tour that will put you in direct contact with our history. You can observe the presence of silver and gold in its natural state as our ancestors left as mining originated in our culture. And if you like the adrenaline come and enjoy extreme sports in 100% natural scenarios from the bowels of the earth.
We recommend the tour and if your Spanish is not the best then ask for Alphonso aka "Pancho". He had the english required to explain the history, geology and mineralogy more than adequately. He also made the tour fun and there were some surprise guests!

If you are up for a little hike, take the narrow alleys and stairs up the mountain. The last part is a little tricky if you don’t go up the regular road as it leads through the woods up the hill. It’s fairly steep and just a small trail. Otherwise just keep following the road up the hill. Be sure to ask for directions as you go up the hill. The easier way to get up is to grab a taxi. Once you’ve arrived you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views! Absolutely worth it!
