What people have said about Copala Mexico
Hidden high in the Sierra Madre above Mazatlan is the beautiful town of
Copala which once was a gold mining area. Walking the cobblestone main
street which is wide enough for a mule and VW beatle to pass each
Children quickly surround you showing off the wood carvings they have made of the buildings in the town. The older the child the greater the detail. The children learn the art of carving from an artist who lives in the area and has a shop in the town.
The stark beauty of the chruch is a must visit. Be sure to walk around
the outside and see the plates in the walls. It is easy to loose track
of time in this peaceful small town. Copala is a place once you have
been there it will always be in your mind. I"ll be back (
Copala is a delightful little town, founded in 1565 thanks to its rich mineral lands. Built into the slopes of a small valley about 40 miles from Mazatlan, its cobblestone roads, colonial style homes, flower patios, and provincial air has converted this town into a refreshing resort in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. Copala will make you feel that you have just stepped back into time. For years Copala was a virtual ghost town. This village has been slowly restored and is once again thriving, now it is tourism that is bringing people to this charming foothill setting of what once was the ancestral home of former President Lopez Portillo. The impressive Church of San Jose , built in 1740, is one of the finest among its area.
