Patzcuaro in Michoacan is on the Mexican tourist board’s exclusive list of Magical Towns, a label that only means one thing: it’s a place with a real Mexican soul. And what’s more important for the soul than art? Here are the best galleries where you can get close to art in this beautiful village.

La Mano Gráfica

Art Gallery

This art gallery is run by painter and graphic designer Silvia Capistrán and engraver Artemio Rodríguez. The original idea was born in Los Angeles, California, in 2003 under the name La Mano Press, but five years later, they opened this gallery in Mexico and decided to change the name to La Mano Gráfica. Its main focus is on graphic art.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
