3 mins and you are done.

Go. Look at it. Done. Not really much I can say. I am not an architect or engineer so cannot comment on the difficulty or uniqueness of the structure.

Una obra arquitectónica con gran contenido en historia y cultura, lo malo es que si quieres admirarlo todo, será por medio del automóvil o un tour guiado, ya que es bastante largo y no hay lugar para que puedas estar tomándole fotografías.

It's such a beautiful place. If you can read a little about the ancient place and how it works could be really useful to understand better this beauty.

It is beautiful to see/walk and drive. At night the Aqueduct is lit up. The surrounding areas are beautiful parks, homes and a lively downtown scene.

Morelia seems to have a huge traffic and a potential big pollution problem. The Aqueduct is really pretty but cars go everyday at its side. At night, when there are almost no cars, its a very pretty view.

My wife was rather keen to via the aqueduct but we ran out of time and were due to leave early in the morning. The solution was to visit after dinner. Viewing during the night proved to be a worthwhile experience; it is very impressive.

My parents grew up here so we come to Morelia like every 2 years and that is and has always been one of my favorite places to drive by or walk by at night.

During the day, the streets along the aqueduct are very busy. The juxtaposition of colonial architecture and modern traffic is quite striking. At night, the aqueduct is lit up so that the stones take on an almost golden appearance. It's very beautiful! If you have opportunity, try to see this landmark at various times of day.
