ReservationDiscover Patzcuaro

San Juan Bautista (St. John, the Baptist)

Tuesday June 9

The day of St. John the Baptist, is celebrated in Patzcuaro, of course, but more particularly in Santa Fe de la Laguna, a lakeside village founded by Bishop Quiroga in 1533. There is not only a religious procession, but also  a folk festival  as part of the celebrations.  In some other lakeside villages they often celebrate with  a symbolic battle between the Moors and the Chrisitians, a custom that was brought over from Spain.

Corpus Christi (Eucharist) is held on Thursday after Trinity Sunday, and commemorates The Last Supper.
