Glimpses of Michoacan
In the heart of Mexico, only a few hours west of Mexico City, the State of Michoacan regrettably is not as well-known to tourists as the resort zones of Acapulco, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta.
Glimpses of Michoacan reveals some of the marvelous sights and sounds of the historic and scenic land including the colonial architecture, churches, museums, plazas and parks of the capital city of Morelia, the craftworks of the villages that surround Lake Patzcuaro and a visit to a lava field beneath the Paricutin volcano.
The history of Michoacan's illustriuous social and polical heroes Vasco de Quiroga and Jose Maria Morelos is also explored along with the Purepecha (Tarascan) people group who has inhabited the region since before the Spanish conquest.
Whether a frequent visitor or a first-time traveler here, Michoacan will captivate your senses.
