Pueblos Magicos (Magical Villages) in Michoacan
Pueblos Mágicos (Magical Villages) is a Mexican goverment program initiated by Secretariat of Tourism (SECTUR) to stand out special towns around the country that offer visitors a “magical” experience – by reason of their natural beauty, cultural riches, or historical relevance.
A Pueblo Mágico (Magical Village) is a place with symbolism, legends, history, important events, day-to-day life – in other words, “magic” in its social and cultural manifestations, with great opportunities for tourism.
The programme was launched in 2001. A total of 40 towns and villages in 28 different states have been awarded the title Pueblo Mágico. There will be a total of 52 Pueblos Mágicos.
