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.

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.
