It is very relaxing walking around this Plaza while eating one Nieve or Elotes! There is always something going on and the colonial architecture is just perfect : ) I highly recommend this place!

We've seen many Mexican plazas, and Patzcuaro's is the prettiest! A dedicated army of cleaners keeps it tidy, as they obviously take great pride in it. Sunday nights are the liveliest, with families strolling and eating and often watching live entertainment.

Right in the heart of Pátzcuaro is this place where you can see the typical dance of "the aged ones" or "Los viejitos", eating a delicious ice cream of a variety of flavors.

Don't be shy - savor the ice creams from the stands on the arcade. Lovely spot to stroll and people watch.

This is a very large square with a parquet and fountains, surrounded by uniformly old buildings with shops and restaurants. A great place to have lunch and see people strolling by.

I was extremely impressed with this charming town, especially that it dates back to the 1300's. There are dancers in the zocolo (plaza) and lots of other activity. Stores & restaurants are clustered around it, too. It is safe and clean. Don't believe the terrible...More

The plaza is in the middle of everything; you can visit dozens of tiny stores and restaurants around the plaza and enjoy the view of the huge trees that appear to be a hundred years or more.
