Today is Good Friday. This is the day Jesus was crucified. This photo was taken December 2014 in a small church in Copala, Mexico.
Copala, Mexico with Zeb and Eider Duck
Zeb and Eider are in Copala, Mexico. This small mountain village has 650 full time residents. Copala also has one of the prettiest churches of any Mexican village. This church was begun in 1748 and completed in 1775.
Let’s go inside.
We really like this church. Jesus on the cross is a vivid reminder of the Christian religion.
This depiction of Jesus with a crown of thorns is also an emotional reminder.
Outside the church, we liked this waterless fountain with the white goose.
Copala was founded in 1565 when the Spanish discovered silver. That was 450 years ago! The economy of Copala is based on tourism, mining and agriculture. Copala is also a National Historic Landmark in Mexico. Across from the church in the main plaza, we saw this pretty gazebo.
Of course, we ducks liked these chickens.
Today we saw these kids playing.
Sadly, silver shop was closed today.
We thought the mural on this building was very pretty.
Copala is about 50 kilometers from the beaches of Mazatlan. We liked this little town and we think you would like it also. When you are in Mazatlan, why not visit Copala?
