Surrounded by dramatic mountains and cliffs with steep cobblestone streets, striking Spanish colonial architecture, and rust-red roofs tangled in bougainvillea, this charming city is well worth exploring. The first sight of Taxco`s white buildings speckled around the steep valley as you approach it is absolutely stunning. Take your time visiting the museums, admiring the arts and crafts, and shopping for authentic silverware in this magical Mexican city. Plaza Borda, the main square, is home to the landmark 18th-century Santa Prisca church, with stone towers and a rose-colored façade in elaborate churrigueresque style. Nearby, the Casa Borda cultural center displays works by local artists, and hosts music and theater events.
