Morelia, a city of about one million, rests on a gentle sloping hill overlooking the Valley of Guayangareo and is one of Mexico's colonial gems. Its historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Sight. At an elevation of 6,302 feet above sea level, Morelia's climate provides spring-like days throughout the year. The city and surrounding state offer a refreshing addition to any colonial city tour itinerary. Morelia is the capital of Michoacán, a land of immense beauty. Michoacán is the colonial Spanish translation of the Nahuatl word Mechuacan, which means 'place of land of the fisherman'.
