Furniture Shop Along the Highway

On Highway 37 midway between Uruapan and Paracho is the small village of Capacuaro.

Located in the center of the Meseta Purepecha region of Michoacan, Capacuaro is known for their carved furniture. The men of the village are mostly carpenters creating chairs, tables, dressers, and many other pieces of hand-carved furniture in Mexican colonial style.

The village is home to a 16th century Parish Church with a facade that features cherubs, flowers, and shells carved in the stone.

Each year in late June the residents of Capacuaro celebrate a fiesta in honor of San Juan Bautista. The fiesta begins on the evening of the 23rd with The Dances of the Moors and a procession through the town and ends on the 25th with a serenade of song and an artisan market.
