It is a town where its buildings keep a fragment of Mexican history, a place that emanates patriotism, where the past is combined with the present. From its church with its nostalgic walls to its representative icons that give life to its culinary and artisan traditions, it is a region that offers a number of tourist attractions to its visitors.

This place is characterized by a former Augustinian convent of the 16th century, it is the most important jewel of this Magic Town, which has resisted the passage of time and which accounts for the architectural magnificence of the first colonial constructions erected in that downtown area from Mexico. In addition, the imposing lagoon that means “Lake of blood” whose name is of Purépecha origin, was named for the attractive colors of its waters, which with the reflection of the sun form greenish, reddish and even scarlet tones, similar to that of the blood.
