The Aqueduct, Morelia

(4.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Admire The Aqueduct, a feat of engineering and a popular local landmark. Constructed in 1785 under the instruction of Bishop Fray Antonio de San Miguel, the structure brought drinking water to the city during a terrible drought that lasted two years. The indigenous people of the region built the aqueduct, which measures 1,810 m (5,938 ft) and includes 253 arches. Today, the attractive structure marks out a nice route through town, while its distinct coloration and notable age has an interesting visual impact on the modern town growing up around it.

  • We passed by the Aqueduct on foot and in the car. It is impressive to drive the length of it and learn it's history. Don't miss seeing it while you are in Morelia.  more »
