Pachuca Shopping | Where to Shop and What to Buy
Pachuca has several malls, as well as specialty craft shops where you can find beautiful folk art by talented local artisans.
Among the main shopping malls are Plaza Perisur, Plaza Universidad, and Plaza Bella; all of which have department stores, food courts, electronics stores, jewelers, boutiques, and other entertainment options.
Silver is one of the most popular items to shop for in Pachuca due to the city’s more than 500 years of mining history. This legacy has led to the production of fine jewelry, platters, bowls, trays, vases, and a wide variety of fine decorative items for special occasions and everyday use. These products can be found in various shops located throughout the city, as well as in the town of Real del Monte, which is located 15 minutes from Pachuca.
Casa de Artesanias Hidarte
At this handicraft center you can shop for silver jewelry, miniature figurines of miners, replicas of mining tools made of screws, nuts, and other recycled materials, as well as beautiful Tlahuelompa bells, textiles, and colorful pottery.
