Taxco is a small town in the southern Mexican state Guerrero. It once was a silver mining city and, although the mine is now almost depleted, it remains the main center for silver jewelry production in Mexico. Many famous Mexican manufacturers such as Spratling still have workshops in Taxco.

The official name of the town is Taxco de Alarcón.
