“Morelia is the coolest place you’ve never been.”
This is how our guidebook begins the section on this city (more photos) of 650,000 people that is a little more than halfway between Guadalajara and Mexico City and I’m inclined to agree with the writer. The historical center of the city is filled with 16th and 17th-century stone buildings with baroque facades, balconies with iron railings and archways fill the interior courtyards. There are nice restaurants, sidewalk cafes, rooftop lounges, museums and, of course, beautiful churches. We’d like to share our list of the top 5 coolest things about Morelia, but first, a word about bus travel in Mexico.
