San Jerónimo Purenchécuaro

From $900 MXN

San Jeronimo Purenchecuaro has a well-kept secret: its wax creations. Flowers, decorations and complex shapes parade in the annual contests of this discipline that is why we invite to the house of the best artisan in the area so you can make your own candle.

The appointment is at San Jeronimo Purenchecuaro community from Quiroga. We will wait for you in the downtown to head towards the house of the famous artisan. You will see the burn of paraffin and be witness of the complex process each item has.

 We will visit the house of Rosalba Morales, master cook and creator of the famous trout of Purenchecuaro. You will taste the best gastronomic creations, like traditional meals from the lacustrine area. Everything made right there, with ingredients gathered a few hours ago.

We will end with a walk through town: the first plaque, its church devoted to San Jeronimo, a gazebo, its modern auditorium, as well as the main gates that show the evolution of the community.

 An invitation you will not be able to decline.
