HISTORICAL CENTER
Declared Patrimony of Humanity, the city of Morelia shelters a historic center with beautiful colonial buildings such as the Acueducto of 253 arcs constructed in the XVIII century, and beautiful gardens designed under French influence. In the San Nicolas Hidalgo College, the father of the Mexican Independence took part and also Jose Maria Morelos y Pavon was a student here.

The ancient temple of Merced is one of the constructions with the most architectural value in the city, due to its rich baroque style of the mid XVII century.
