Nice spot

Cosy square with a nice fountain. From here you can see "El Acueducto" and "the lovers road". Amazing walk from the "Plaza de Armas"

Icon of Morelia is a must see if you are visiting this wonderful colonial city! Great stop close to the aqueducts ... a look into the history of the city!

We passed the Tarascan Fountain a while back as we were leaving Morelia. A lovely sculpture of three naked women holding a basket of fruit.

You can kill 2 birds with 1 stone but visiting here and the aqueduct. It's a 15-20 minute walk from cathedral.

I wish I could say more here, but the fact that it's a pretty fountain and that it has a lovely water effect pretty much sums it up.

A guy just got killed right in front of my eyes at 3:30 PM. I was eating in a restaurant and saw how everything happened. This place is crazy.

Very interesting part of Morelia history. It has replaced the fountain of flowers across the street. There is a tremendous amount of history to be learned in Morelia. Also we felt totally safe at all times, safer than most 1.5 million population cities in estados unidos.

It is a very nice fountain and nice area to sit if you don't get run over by cars getting to it. One very nice item about the fountain is that a portion of the aqueduct circles around one portion of it.
