Patzcuaro - Plaza Grande

Plaza Grande, also called Plaza Principal or Plaza Don Vasco de Quiroga, is one of the prettier plazas in Mexico, with a fountain and a statue of Vasco de Quiroga. Hotels, shops, and restaurants in colonial-era buildings surround this plaza.

Patzcuaro is the ex-capital of Michoacan and before that was Tzintzuntzan, a small town nearby dating to the Purhépecha empire in the 1300's. The museum in Patzcuaro is finding ruins in it's back yard that predates history and they are believed to be earlier than the history of Tzintzuntzan. The Purhépecha were one of the indigenous tribes that were not conquered by the Aztecs
