Tlaquepaque

The Tlaquepaque (tuh-lah-keh-pah-keh) is an arts and crafts village that is located in Sedona, Arizona. The village was constructed as a copy of the traditional Mexican style village and sits under the shaded sycamore trees along the Oak Creek riverbanks. In fact, its name translation is very true to its description of the village, meaning ‘best of everything’. There are art galleries, fountains, shops and restaurants and even a chapel that can be scheduled for weddings. Many bronze sculptures created by the galleries’ artists decorate the landscape there, and I’ll be featuring some of them in the coming weeks.

  1. I loved this place. Of course, I honed in pretty quickly on the ice cream and chocolate shop. Delicious ice cream, every kind of licorice candy you can imagine, from all over the world, and if you have a craving for chocolate, there it is! Yum, yum, yum! Thanks for sharing this with me, Cousin!
