Morelia has many places to visit, a must one is the "Acueducto". If you like to walk I invite you to do it in a zig zag way, passing behind his arcs, and every time you do admire the other side of the boulevard. You can start the visit in front of "Venustiano Carranza" sport center and from there to... More

You can drive right along the route of the Aqueduct and snap some amazing pics! It is a must see in Morelia, about 10 minutes from downtown. There are plenty of nice restaurants near the aqueduct and a lovely sculpture entitled "Las Tarascas"

Go. Look at it. Done. Not really much I can say. I am not an architect or engineer so cannot comment on the difficulty or uniqueness of the structure.

Una obra arquitectónica con gran contenido en historia y cultura, lo malo es que si quieres admirarlo todo, será por medio del automóvil o un tour guiado, ya que es bastante largo y no hay lugar para que puedas estar tomándole fotografías.

It's such a beautiful place. If you can read a little about the ancient place and how it works could be really useful to understand better this beauty.

It is beautiful to see/walk and drive. At night the Aqueduct is lit up. The surrounding areas are beautiful parks, homes and a lively downtown scene.

Morelia seems to have a huge traffic and a potential big pollution problem. The Aqueduct is really pretty but cars go everyday at its side. At night, when there are almost no cars, its a very pretty view.

My wife was rather keen to via the aqueduct but we ran out of time and were due to leave early in the morning. The solution was to visit after dinner. Viewing during the night proved to be a worthwhile experience; it is very impressive.

My parents grew up here so we come to Morelia like every 2 years and that is and has always been one of my favorite places to drive by or walk by at night.
