Tzintzuntzan

This town was the capital of the Tarascan Empire. Later, after the Conquest, it was the first city of Michoacán. The vigil of the dead begins in the first minutes of the 2nd of November in the cemetery where families begin to light tapers and candles on the newly cleaned graves. It is also here that they place their unique offering of flowers and foods accompanied by the best pieces of pottery that are made in the region including black glazed earthenware, white ceramics, as well as straw and carved wood angels.
