Taxco is called a "Pueblo Magico", and it truly is just that. The town was established in 1529, and has been an important source of silver mining. It is known internationally for it's silver jewelry craftsmen, it's picturesque surroundings, and it's abundance of crafts. It has a population of over 40,000, and sits at an elevation of 5,833 feet. You will probably notice that just about all of the houses are painted white!
Today I wanted to also share the carved wooden masks that are made in this region, and sold throughout Taxco. Angels are a common theme, with a style of face that is unique to this area.
