picturesque buildings. The first silver shipped to Spain came from the mines
of Taxco. José de la Borda made and spent three fortunes here in the 18th
Century. He founded the present town and built the magnificent twin-towered
rose-colored parish church of Santa Prisca, which soars above everything but
the mountains. The main central area is full of shops and shopping tourists.
