Went to Taxco from Mexico City with Mexcity Tours to visit one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen Santa Prisca Church. This church was built in 1748 and took only 9 years to build. It is unbelievably magnificently beautiful inside.

Santa Prisca is on the small central square of Taxco. The interior is ornate, baroque, and in its own way very appealing.

Located right in the center of town, in front of the Zócalo this is a beautiful baroque style building built in the18th century. The visit to Taxco is more than worth it just to admire this gem.

Fantastic building but due to renovation work (it will look amazing when finished) a lot of it was covered over whilst we were there. It sits right in the edge of the Zocalo, right next to the signage for Taxco so makes a great backdrop...More

With a town full of silver, the church sets itself apart with an inside covered with gold. It is relatively small, but is gilded to the hilt with eye candy in every direction. It is the highlight of the zocalo.
