Plaza Vasco de Quiroga (Plaza Grande) information
Pátzcuaro’s leafy main plaza is one of Mexico’s best hangout spots. It is framed by the 17th-century facades of old mansions that have since been converted to hotels, shops and restaurants, and watched over by a serene statue of Vasco de Quiroga , which rises from the central fountain. The arched sides of the plaza are full of food stalls, jewelry and folk-art sellers, and the atmosphere, particularly on the weekend when bands play and street performers entertain, is wonderful.
