Patamban is about 2 hours from Pátzcuaro near San Jose de Gracia and Ocumicho and is famous for its
low-temperature and high-temperature ceramics. We were lucky enough to stumble upon an amazing ceramics cooperative
and a world-renowned ceramicist; but there are numerous workshops and stores in town, each with their own style and
traditions.  Feel free to explore on your own or
hire a guide.
