    I remember its history, but has meaning structure that pose... Since you pose shells and other which mean something in this building, it is a monument of the city of Morelia.

    Las Tarascas fountain walk to the Cathedral of Morelia is an experience that you have to carry out, so you will know the famous avenida Madero and pink quarry buildings.

    Iconic fountain and statues in a very busy corner, best seen on Sunday when you can ride bikes freely downtown

    You can kill 2 birds with 1 stone but visiting here and the aqueduct. It's a 15-20 minute walk from cathedral.
