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 :-)
If you like my photos of Santa Clara del Cobre please share. Gracias!

A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of creating this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going ;-) Gracias!
