Taxco ~ Extraordinary Land of Silver and Natural Wonders!
This picturesque, cobblestoned-street “Pueblo Magico” located in the middle of steep hills and surrounded by lush semi-arid forests, is as rich in silver as it is in nature, culture and history. Taxco was formerly known as Tlachco, which means “ball game”. It was a settlement initially inhabited by the Tlahuicas, a tributary society of the Aztecs. But by the eighteenth century, the city’s future was in the hands of Jose de la Borda, known as the “Phoenix of the Rich Miners of America” for his discovery of an important silver deposit. The town by then had been resettled by the Spanish. Santa Prisca, Taxco’s main church, was built during this period (1759), and is one of the finest examples of Mexican/Spanish baroque architecture. read full text
