Sometimes I lead pilgramage tours to Mexico. Taxco is one of the best palaces on the way. Santa Prisca is build in Chirrugurresco style - the mMexican Barocco style. Main fasade and interior is amazing. And a lot things to see around.

It's almost worth the trip to Taxco just to see this cathedral. Over the top ornate and it just dominates the city skyline with its size. Get a guide as there's too much in there to figure out on your own, but use one of the ones that are credentialed by the city.

If you don't want to spend a couple of bucks in silver (you can find good quality and bad quality for a wide range of prices), then just go to the Agua Escondida terrace (it is also a good hotel/spa), ask for a local craft beer and sit to enjoy and decipher each crave on the façade of this beautiful...

Stunning both externally and internally. Do seek out the side chapel with very interesting murals. The interior is a feast for the eyes.

Definitely worth a look. It's free entry some guys will ask if you want a tour but you can say no and just have a wander through.

There are lots of men standing outside the cathedral eager to give you a tour. We paid 150 pesos - which was well worth the investment. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed learning about the history of the town, the founding family, and the architect. Even our 8 year old was enthralled!
