From purépecha Hihuatsi " Place of coyotes ".
It was an important place before the European conquest, managed
to reach a high economic and architectonic development that we can
still observe in the ruins of the archaeological zone. In this place
the visitor will know the temple parochial San Francisco de Asis
that conserves its facade dated 18th century, has a wooden sculpture
of San Nicholas Tolentino dated 18th century and a painting of San
Jose dated 19th century. Here, the vigil during the night of deads,
on November 2nd is very beautiful : they have regional dances and
sale of regional food.
