  • Right near the Sanctuary Church of Guadalupe and the Aqueduct this is yet another symbol of Morelia and it celebrates the Tarascan culture. Morelia is the splendid capital city of the Michoacan...

  • Such a beauty, well preserved and clean. The history behind and the iconography is a topic anyone sightseeing should ask. I recommend hiring a local guide or paying a tour in the trolley just outside the cathedral. (Which also runs through and around beautiful Morelia explaining many historical facts and legends)
  • Beautiful during day and night. Well kept and groomed area. The fountains are not the originals but adds to the mysticism of the place; and parallels the missing and murder of women monument placed in front of it and graffiti regarding the same.
