Taxco is heavily associated with silver, both with the mining of it and other metals and for the crafting of it into jewelry, silverware and other items. The city was named one of Mexico’s “Pueblos Mágicos” (Magical Towns) due to the quality of the silverwork, the colonial constructions and the surrounding scenery. It is also filled vintage VW Beetles, as they offer an inexpensive rear-wheel drive option for getting up and down the city’s steep cobblestone streets.
