Santa Clara is the town that produces copperware and copper crafts of all kinds. For 5 pesos from the Patzcuaro bus station it is an easy part of the day trip. There are many shops that sell copper products and if you walk to the rear you can watch items being manufactured. Although you have to go uphill from Patzcuaro, it seems to be considerably warmer here probably because there are no trees. Santa Clara has two one way streets that make up the arteries in and out of town.
