Going to see it was a nice walk around town. It's nothing special, but it's there and should be looked at.

The aqueduct of Morelia is stunning in lenght. I was really surprised that so much of it was still preserved. In the past, it started in a lake, that is now apparently dried out.

This is by far the best preserved aqueduct I've seen. Sure it is less than 300 yrs old but still impressive. Blends perfectly with the city. Not many places in the world that have such an impressive complete/preserved architecture within the city. Certainly nothing like it in the US.

I was surprised the see the Aqueduct as one that looks strong and as if it could still work - not in ruins. The walk there was pleasant and it isn't far from the center of town.

It's a privilege to see this anticuated work preserved and maintained. Lighted at night makes it magical.

The aqueduct is a very unique sight with all of its arches. The surrounding area with its parks and sidewalk tiendas was a great way to spend an afternoon
