A colourful and abstract digital illustration of a street in Morelia, Michoacán, México. Created in 2020
Founded as the “City of Michoacán” in 1540, this city sits on one of Mexico’s central states, Michoacán. Whilst the state has a long history of human occupation, Michoacán is best known for its Day of the Dead celebrations, as the birthplace and educational pillar for many of Mexico’s 19th and 20th-century revolutionaries, and for the natural annual phenomenon that is the Monarch Butterfly migration.
It is probably one of my favourite states to visit in the country, primarily for its unique and regional artisan crafts and its delicious carnitas! Morelia is the capital city of the state and its historic centre is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Whilst I have travelled to the city on numerous occasions over the years, I think each time I visit I find something new to fall in love with. Mexico is full of beautiful and fascinating cities and towns, with rich cultural heritage and stunning sights and landscapes, but Morelia for me is one of the best.
The city’s Cathedral, detailed in the centre of this piece, sits in all its glory next to the Plaza de Armas and has often been remarked upon as one of Mexico’s most beautiful cathedrals (which is quite a feat considering how many there are).
