The Aqueduct, Morelia
(4.6/5 based on 440+ 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. Use our Morelia itinerary builder to arrange your visit to The Aqueduct and other attractions in Morelia.

  • Very nice to watch, take pictures and do walk. At the end of the structure comes to the beginning of the historical centre of the city. It would be very cool to have a bike path in this Avenue and in General, throughout the city, which is quite flat and has pleasant climate for cycling.
