Is a good place to visit, but don't plan a full day at it because if on a very traffic Avenue. There are good stores and restaurants around so you can just plan a dinner and enjoy the view of the roundabout.

It's a nice thing to check off the list of things to see in Morelia. However it doesn't require a lot of time and you will be done in 10 minutes. Put it in as a quick stop along your way through the city

This fountain is situated between the town centre and the hotel were I was staying so I saw it often. It represents 3 purepecha women carying a plaat of food. You can appreciate the purepechas by visiting Tzintzuntzan (the archeological site) which is not too far from Morelia on your way to Uruapan.

This place means the fertility and the beauty of this state. Each woman means one of the capitals michoacan have had during its existence. It's a beauty place around also

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.

This fountain is a landmark that connects the Centro, with other parts of Morelia... Parks and Squares surround the area, where people watching is a weekend activity...
