A skeleton dressed in period, with his wide-brimmed hat adorned with flowers, his lace and a feathered serpent like a rebozo greets everyone who arrives in Capula. It is the catrina, the symbol of this small pottery town of the Don Vasco Route, famous for being the place where these emblematic emblematic figures from all over Mexico are made.

It was Don Juan Torres, famous international artist who made Capula his home, who popularized the catrina decades ago. Today, hundreds of small family workshops in the village keep their legacy alive, adding in each batch new designs and the personal stamp of each craftsman.
