  • 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.

  • A must to visit! Nice fountain. A lot of people.
  • It could be better without cars
  • 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.
  • 👌
