About Taxco Silver:

“This colonial city lies in the north of the state of Guerrero, about 100 miles southwest of Mexico City. The area, nestled into rugged mountain terrain, has always been known for its richness in silver. Even in pre-Hispanic times, silver was mined for ritualistic gifts to the Aztec gods and other ceremonial purposes. The Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés established the modern town of Taxco, choosing its location because of the abundance of silver and establishing mining haciendas for the extraction and exportation of the precious metal…

Since this design renaissance in the 1920s, Taxco’s reputation as a source of both the raw silver ore and beautifully worked silver jewelry has grown internationally. The beautiful colonial architecture, gorgeous landscape and exquisite silver jewelry makes Taxco a popular tourism destination for both Mexican nationals and international visitors. It is often referred to as “The Silver Capital of the World” and is the site of the World’s Silver Fair every November.”
