Santa Clara del Cobre is a small town in Michoacan, Beautiful Mexico, that is famous for copper, (cobre means copper). The native Purépecha people in this area are skilled in coppersmithing and you can find copper goods and crafts in abundance here.
Santa Clara del Cobre has an annual copper festival in August and it was named a Pueblo Mágico, (Magic Village), in 2010. That is an honor for any small town in Mexico and it probably is a good addition to your Beautiful Mexico bucket list :-)
Since posting this I have had several questions about where a person can find these copper town artisans and their beautiful crafts. Well, the best way is to visit Santa Clara del Cobre! If you are planning a trip, check out some of the shops on Google HERE. Signing off, Tina
