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.

This fountain was once painted in bright colors which scandalized the public for "showing too much skin" so it was moved and the current one was placed without paint.

Visit for the historical importance. It is within walking distance of the city center and taxis are available.

Color me cynical, but this is just a fountain in a country full of them. It is not horrid but it is Just.A.Fountain.

Pretty much the entire historical center of Morelia is incredibly beautiful and well balanced, and this fountain portraying Purépecha's womanhood is no exception.
