The Tarascas Fountain are a great starting point to check out either the Aqueduct or Downtown. Downside is that the current sculpture is a "knock-off" as the original one is rumored to have been stolen and its sitting at a estate in Spain.

The fountain is gorgeous and there is another one just across the road. We enjoyed sitting on one of the many benches in the area watching people and take in the historic aqua duct that runs past this area. Afterwards we went across the road to one of the restaurants for something to drink and ice cream. We were able... More

My hotel was near the iconic Tarascas, so I saw it during the day, with bustling traffic. I saw it at dusk, when it comes golden. And I saw it at night, illuminated. Graceful and beautiful in any light! Travelers to Morelia should not miss this.

It's a beautiful fountain representative of the city, if you go to Morelia this is a must. It's not big or grand, but it represents the native people of the region.

This is probably the best point from which one can explore the Aqueduct in Morelia and then continue a walk towards the cathedral. There are nice cafes and restaurants nearby including a German as well as a Cuban restaurant.

This is a lovely fountain near the end of the aqueduct in Morelia. The original disappeared in the 1940s and this is a replica. Beautiful, nonetheless with indigenous maidens showing off their bounty.

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