Diablitos de Ocumicho
Well above the strawberry fields of Tangancicuaro, but barely at the beginning of a lengthy climb to Cocucho lay the steep streets of Ocumicho also known as Purepecha inferno. The town specializes in fantastically painted hand-shaped clay devils in any situation imaginable. Our favourite is, of course, the cyclist devil, but they come in elaborate scenes from the last supper to the dentists office.
