|Juan O'Gorman's Mural in Pátzcuaro|
The mural is – or should be – part of any tour of Patzcuaro. It’s a fantastic way to see “at a glance” the history of Michoacan in a huge, colorful, pictorial manner.

The gigantic mural spans centuries of Michoacan history, including the eruption of a volcano, life around Lake Patzcuaro, wars, celebrations, daily life, things like the introduction of horses by the Spaniards, and some personal observations by the painter.

Curiously, the mural was financed by an American businessman, Edgar J. Kaufman, of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, to be painted in the US, but O’Gorman convinced Kaufman to let him paint it in Mexico, and he chose Patzcuaro. How lucky we are!
