Capital of the wildly beautiful state of Michoacan

The colonial city of Morelia is located in the beautiful state of Michoacan, to the Northwest of Mexico City. Morelia is an ideal base from which to visit the Monarch butterflies sanctuary, to witness the Day of the Dead celebrations and to tour the surrounding villages for handicraft shopping direct from the source.

Combine a visit here with a stay in the town of Patzcuaro, just an hour away by road.
