"Guayangareo," Valladolid, Morelia

Morelia, Micioacan in prehispanic times was once likely called "Guayangareo." In a colonial time it was called Valladolid. The older downtown section of the city still has a noble and lordly aspect of the epoc of the viceroys. It was designated a Cultural Patrimonony of Humanity in 1991.

In the older part of this fine Mexican city the Cathedral dominates the skyline. Many of the streets of this part of the city end at a temple or monestary, seemingly built with the intention of being roads to faith.

Morelia may be an excellent place for the history buff to begin his study of hispanic Mexico.

The greater city of Morelia is a major cultural and artistic center with a great variety of cultural events and venues. Internation musical festivals are held in the city. It has its pleasant zoo and interesting planitarium. It has one of the better Orquidariums and an amazingly great variety of museums.

The city is less expensive than much of Mexico and has really great food.

Nearby is the "Rout of Health" into the area of hot water spas in the very attractive highlands. Nearer yet are 'typical towns like Charo, Capulo, and Cuizeo which are a pleasure to visit.

  1. I think everything published was very logical. But, think about this, what if you
    typed a catchier post title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added
    something that makes people want more? I mean ""Guayangareo," Valladolid, Morelia" is kinda vanilla.
    You should glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create article titles to get people
    interested. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've written. Just my
    opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
