[edit] Information

To discover how the "Dia de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead) festival is celebrated in Mexico, the ‘Fantastic Festivals of the World’ team traveled to the heart of the beautiful and lush Michoacan State. By the shores of Patzcuaro Lake, small indigenous villages, descendants of the Purepecha tribe, celebrate this festival in a most unusual way. Here they call it the "Night of the Dead". Pagan rituals from Pre Hispanic times are blended with the Colonial Catholic traditions by the local people to create a colorful and uplifting way of honoring their adored dead.

Off the Beaten Path: Michoacan is known for its skilled artisans. Stone carvers, devilish mask makers and the ancient craft of creating figures from corn cane are the area’s specialty.

Culinary Delights takes us to the city of Morelia and two sisters who specialize in local cuisine such as Tarascan soup and pot coffee made with chocolate.
