RELIGION

Taxqueñans are a religious people as can be seen in the number of churches and small shrines around the town. Church bells ring at all hours of the day and night, marking not only the time, but the hours of religious services and even knelling news of a death in the neighborhood. Many people maintain a private shrine in their home or garden which are almost always lovingly adorned with fresh cut flowers.

Once outlawed by the Mexican Government in an effort to reduce the power of the Catholic Church, religious processions now take place routinely in the streets around town. At times processions of believers make their way from some of the local villages to town oftentimes carrying a religious icon which will be placed for a while in one of the Taxco churches before returning to its home village in yet another procession.

Taxco is best known for its Easter Week processions of penitents. There is much secrecy surrounding the individuals who participate, but many are said to be seeking relief from an illness or living a pledge made on behalf of a family member. It is not something for the weak of heart for the blood is as real as the pain of the participants. The accompanying drummers beat a solemn dirge which may chill many a soft heart. Nevertheless, Taxco is always completely filled during Easter Week with visiting spectators of this medieval expression of religious fervor.

 

A more light hearted and wonderful day in Taxco may be spent visiting all of the many churches and small shrines in town. Each has its own character and many differ in the architectural style in which they were built, reflecting the growth of the town and evolving forms of faith over the centuries. Each of the Catholic churches in its unique statuary also seems to reflect a particular vision of Catholicism. The churches are all fascinating to visit and many are truly beautiful buildings.

What follow are links to pictorials of the churches we have visited and to some of the small shrines we have seen along the way when we have been traveling in Taxco.

Comment: Housed in the former Taxco residence of William Spratling, what makes Caffecito unusual is that it combines a fine restaurant and a gallery of my jewelry designs along with those of Spratling. My father, Alberto Ulrich, bought the Spratling home and ranch and all rights to the designs he left behind back in 1968 and we are proud today to continue the tradition of matching fine design with fine quality. We have recently added the work of other local silver designers in Taxco to the Gallery. You can come and browse while having a glass of wine before your meal. We've brought that character to our restaurant as well. Please take a moment to read the tribute to my father on the home page of Taxco-Today, just click here.
