follow the aqueduct through the historic center of the city past shops, churches, wonderful places to eat and a handful of museums and universities. A lovely walk and great photo opportunities

Saw it while on the trolly guided tour. I heard the history of it and it was interesting.

Don't miss visiting the 253 arches of the aqueduct. Go at night and maybe during the daytime too. It is really beautiful all lit up at night. Morelia has done a wonderful job featuring their architectural attractions with excellent nighttime lighting. Stroll along the tree lined street on the pedestrian walkway. Stop for a rest on one of the many Baroque benches. Enjoy the park and please don't miss a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art with its interesting and engaging exhibits.

The aqueduct itself is interesting because it is very old and quite beautiful. The park that it runs around on two sides is lovely with sloping lawns, fountains, huge trees and benches all around the perimeter. A great place to take a book and read or just sit back and people watch.

On our first day in Morelia, we decided to check out the Aqueduct, having seen the one in Zacatecas a year ago. We saw it on a Sunday which I highly recommend since they close the streets around it on that day. We started at the Tarascas Fountain and walked alongside the Aqueduct, passing the Contemporary Art Museum and ending at the Plaza Morelos. We then walked back down the Calzada Fray Antonio de San Miguel, which is an old walkway always closed to vehicles. We encountered a group of musicians from a local church singing worship songs. Nice touch on a Sunday morning, as well as families with children, young lovers and people watchers. The next day we returned to walk to the end of the Aqueduct where there is a statue and a plaque honoring the workers who constructed it.
