Begin at Tonala, which has been dedicated to the production of pottery since prehispanic times. Visit the handicraft center to see ceramics made from Trabajan mud, wrought iron items, papier mache work, and spun and blown glass.
Founded by Zapotec Indians after they mixed with other tribes, including the Tonaltecas, the clay soil provides the perfect material for colorful pots and vases, many sold at a giant street market that covers several main streets twice a week.
Continue to Tlaquepaque to see beautiful colonial mansions, now converted to shops and galleries that showcase the varied crafts of the residents. Tlaquepaque derives its name from the Nahuatl for "place above clay land,” and as well as its famous pottery and blown glass, the town often comes alive to the sound of mariachi bands.
