History of Taxco
The 20th century appears to have
had little effect on Taxco,
perhaps due to the fact that it was literally cut off
from the rest of the world until the first paved road
was constructed to Taxco in 1930.
To ensure the permanence of the city's almost
"fairy tale colonial character,"
the Government declared Taxco a national monument.
Now it seems that the ground floor
of every building in town
holds a silversmith shop. The town is
graced with cobblestone
streets which weave their way
around and over the hills.
There are no paved streets on Taxco.
The town is replete with pink and white stucco houses
with their balconies filled with flowering plants.
Tourists, lured by the exquisite work of the silversmiths,
have made Taxco a popular day trip from
the Pacific resorts of Acapulco and Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo.
But Taxco's quaint, quiet beauty
begs for a longer stay.
Taxco is truly what visitors expect Old Mexico to be.
