Santa Clara del Cobre is a Pueblo Mágico (Magical town) in the center of the state of Michoacán, Mexico. The town is part of the Pátzcuaro region of Michoacán, and ethnically dominated by the Purépecha people. These people have been working with copper since the pre-Hispanic era, and led to this town's dominance in copper crafts over the colonial period until well into the 19th century.
