The municipal government of Paracho submitted its request to obtain the appointment and after a rigorous process, the town met all the requirements to be named as a Magic Town.

According to the Federal Ministry of Tourism, a Magic Town must have symbols and legends, historical moments, magical attractions, and above all, that show the identity of the country in each of its corners.

In this sense, Paracho de Verduzco is world-renowned for making guitars and various wood-based toys, as well as having been the inspiration to make the guitar for the famous Disney movie “Coco”.

  • Monumental guitar

  • Chapels included in the National Catalog of Historical Monuments Property by the National Institute of Anthropology and History 

Paracho de Verduzco joins the 8 Magical Towns that Michoacán already had: Angangueo, Cuitzeo, Santa Clara del Cobre, Tacámbaro, Jiquilpan, Tlalpujahua, Pátzcuaro and Tzintzuntzan.
