Mexico is mostly influenced by Aztec and Mayan culture and this is so evident in many of its cities or towns, in its ruins, monuments and sights to see. One such town is the Taxco de Alarcón, or simply referred to as Taxco, which is located at Guererro.
Associated for its silver mining industry, Taxco is where tourists can find lots of silverware and jewelry. Apart from this, the city is also quite a majestic place to visit as most homes look as if these were built for story books.
Some of the best places to visit in Taxco include the Parish of Santa Prisca y San Sebastían or the Santa Prisca Church, which truly stands out for it is a massive structre with its Baroque architecture. Its also decked in pink stones and has two elaborate towers on each side. For such a small town, this site is something that one cannot miss.
The main plaza, called the Zocalo, is also a great place to check ou. This is where the Casa de Cultural or the Cultural Center is, and appeals to lovers of fine arts, languages or sports. Zocalo is also a shopping site where one can find bars and restaurants as well as plenty of shops selling silver and jewelry.
