'Taxco De Alarcon' or just 'Taxco' is a small Mexican city within a municipality located in the north-central part of the state of Guerrero. The name was probably derived from the interpretation of two Aztec words: 'Tlachoo', a Nahuatl place which means "Place of the Ballgame", or from the word 'Tatzco' which means "Where the Father of the Water Is", due to the high waterfall located near the town center on Atatzin Mountain. 'De Alarcon' is named in honour of a Novohispanic writer and dramatist of the Colonial Era who was native to Taxco, the late Juan Ruiz De Alarcon (1581 - 1639). Taxco is also well known for its mining of Silver alongside other metals, and for crafting them into jewellery, silverware such as this spoon featured on this page, and many other productions. Mining is no longer the primary part of its economy, but its reputation for silver craftsmanship, picturesque architecture, and scenic landscapes makes a good economic home for tourism.
