Morelia is the capital of Michoacan state, located about 180 miles (300 km) west of Mexico City.

The city has maintained a consistent colonial-style throughout, making it one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Most of the main attractions are in the historic center and within walking distance.

Morelia has many students at its universities, a tidy downtown with government and business workers, and surprisingly few travelers – a good city to avoid foreign tour buses.

Historic Landmarks
There are many interesting and beautiful colonial buildings to see in Morelia. Most of them are open to the public for at least part of the day.

World Heritage Sites says: "Built in the 16th century, Morelia is an outstanding example of urban planning which combines the ideas of the Spanish Renaissance with the Mesoamerican experience. Well-adapted to the slopes of the hill site, its streets still follow the original layout. More than 200 historic buildings, all in the region's characteristic pink stone, reflect the town's architectural history, revealing a masterly and eclectic blend of the medieval spirit with Renaissance, Baroque and neoclassical elements. Morelia was the birthplace of several important personalities of independent Mexico and has played a major role in the country's history."
