Just over 100 miles southwest of Mexico City is one of Mexico's most loved colonial towns Taxco, which is also best known in Mexico (and world-wide) for it's silver. Better known for silver in fact, than the real "Silver Cities" which were the hub of Silver Mining in Mexico! Silver mining in Taxco has always been limited, and today the mines are virtually exhausted. Silver from other areas in Mexico is bought here to be crafted, and later sold locally or exported.
