Pátzcuaro

Pátzcuaro (pätˈskwärō) [key], lake, c.100 sq mi (260 sq km) Michoacán state, W Mexico. Its indented shores, dotted with Tarascan villages, green islands, and the curious native sailboats help make Lake Pátzcuaro popular as a resort. The lake is rich in fish. Pátzcuaro is the chief town on the lake.
