Right after breakfast we set off to visit Tlaquepaque, a neighborhood in Guadalajara that is known for artisanal workshops and mastery in the craft of pottery. First stop was the studio of Rodo Padilla, the artist who designed and manufactures the Patron trophies.
Got interesting insights in the production process of pottery and related techniques. Continued with a visit of the Museo Regional de la Ceramica, where we met the artist Manuel Ramirez Martinez, a artisanal paper artist, who invited us to his workshop to produce our own paper from agave fibers with an ancient method.
Lunchbreak was in the stunning restaurant Casa Luna. Amazing food and excellent drinks. Highly recommended!
Entered our coach again and headed to Hacienda Patron, where we finished the day with a nice barbecue and some amazing cocktails.
