Devotion and handicrafts

Holy Week is a time for seclusion and religious fervor. The villagers of Tzintzuntzan dress like Romans looking through the streets for those villagers dressed like Christs.

In Pátzcuaro, the villagers walk the streets carrying impressive 16th century representations of Christ. Solemn processions roam the streets in Morelia. On Palm Sunday, the largest Handicraft Market in all Michoacán takes over Uruapan, with extraordinary artisans from all over Don Vasco’s Route as well as local traditional cooks. Do not forget to visit the nearby “Huatápera”, which nowadays hosts an indigenous museum.
