The Aqueduct, Morelia

4.6
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.

  • This is so beautiful to see and it is charming to walk along its lit pathway at night. Very romantic!  more »
  • What little remains of the aqueduct, initiated by the Aquiles Serdan Street, down to the Villalongín garden and through the Cuauhtémoc forest to a few metres further along where unfortunately concludes. However, it continues to be one of the most representative icons of the city, it is impressive and admirable. The best place to get a photo is just in the Villalongín garden.
