Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts is the most unique shopping experience that you will find in the Southwest. Your unforgettable Sedona adventure must include spending time at the internationally renowned Tlaquepaque (pronounced Tla-keh-pah-keh), Sedona Arizona's arts and crafts haven.
Snuggled beneath the shade of the sycamores on the banks of beautiful Oak Creek in Sedona, Tlaquepaque is genuinely crafted after a traditional Mexican village. Tlaquepaque, which means ?the best of everything," has been a popular Sedona landmark since the 1970's.
Unique shops and gorgeous galleries live in unity with its rich natural environment where giant sycamore trees stand proud in testimony to the passion and care taken to preserve the elegant beauty of the Tlaquepaque landscape. Its cobble-stone pathways, vine covered stucco walls and alluring arched entryways exude an aura like Tlaquepaque has been in existence for centuries.
Originally conceived as a community for artists, Tlaquepaque is an ideal place to witness talented people immersed in their craft. It's not uncommon to trek upon a well-known sculptor doing his or her latest masterpiece right in one of the Tlaquepaque studios.
With more than 40 novelty stores and art galleries, shopping becomes a blissful discovery of great art treasures and distinctive gifts in every corner. This place has lots of amazing one-of-a kind art expressions in every medium -- from traditional and functional ceramics, architectural d?cor pieces, awesome blown glass pieces, eclectic and Western bronze sculpture, Southwestern and contemporary fine art paintings, decorative arts, weavings and stunning large format photography.
Spend the day at Tlaquepaque and relish fine French dining, excellent Mexican food, and an on-site brewery and tasteful lunches in an exclusive garden setting. Tlaquepaque's spacious La Sala de los Milagros room and numerous patio areas are also available for special occasions.
Today, Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts is a tranquil destination that visitors return to again and again. It is where they look and wander, to sample and buy, to feast and drink, and rejuvenate their mind and body.
