Our area is distinguished for its particularly ample and varied gamut of artisans, expressing themselves in each and every piece.  It is part and parcel of the culture and the very identity of the villages surrounding Lake Patzcuaro.

Hotel Mansion Iturbe invites you to become acquainted with the Lacustrine Region and the various typical villages of Michoacan, where you can buy artisan ware directly from the artisans in their shops.  Have a question about the history of the artwork?  Ask the artist directly!  Most of the techniques go back five centuries or more.

Buying directly from the artisans, you support the self-employed families of the Lake Pátzcuaro region; their artisanship is often their only source of income.
