All the main attractions of Morelia are located in the historical center. The Cathedral of Morelia is considered one of the most beautiful in Mexico. The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Santuario de Guadalupe) is located on the outskirts of the historic center. One of the most beautiful churches in Mexico has a number of paintings from the 17th century depicting the "victory" of Spanish missionaries over the "barbaric" religious traditions of the Aztecs. The buildings are built in various architectural styles that have dominated Mexico in different periods of history, but almost all are made of pink cantera stone, giving the old town a solid appearance. And that is why Morelia is very often called "Ciudad Rosa" (Pink City).
All of this combines to make Morelia by far the most cultural city in Michoacan, offering its visitors a wide range of museums and art galleries, as well as cafés perfect for chatting over coffee while sharing pleasant moments. Like all cities, Morelia has stadiums, sports arenas, convention centers, colleges, restaurants and top-level hotels, as well as movie theaters and concert and entertainment venues.
Morelia, a pink city of Mexico!
