Can you dig writing Aunt Mildred a wish-you-were-here postcard while sitting at this desk?
And downtown one can dig the impressive Cathedral, where on every Saturday there is a sound and light show including some fireworks. Images are projected on the walls of the building. At the Government Palace take in the art, at the Clavijero Cultural Center (a baroque building constructed in the middle of the 17th Century serving as the Jesuit College of San Francisco Javier until 1767. Then it became a correctional building for priests (as the deal to make it into a bowling alley fell through), and in 1824 it was occupied by the Michoacan Congress. Now The Palacio Clavijero is actually open to the public as a multidisciplinary center dedicated to the promotion of culture and art.), the Regional Museum is worth a look, the House of Morelos (A former house and now a museum of the important Mexican revolutionary José María Morelos fighting for Mexican independance from Spain who was executed in 1815)., and the Del Carmen Ex-Convent.
All rooms there decorated with antiques and original colonial art.

The Hotel is a great starting point to travel on to see the monarch
The miracle of the monarch butterflies is an excellent trip to consider as these fragile creatures fly thousands of miles from Canada to Michoacan each year.
As these fragile creatures have a lifespan of only a few months the monarchs who came to Mexico from Canada are not the ones who return, but their offspring. So the monarch migrating to Canada in the spring never went there before. And likewise the monarch leaving Canada and the northern US to migrate to Mexico never went there before. Each trip is a new generation, but yet each new generation knows to return to this same mountain. So if they can find it, so can you.

Travel to the capital of Michoacan and admire the exquisite architecture of the buildings that make up its historic center, recognized for the pride of all Mexicans, as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1991.
Today the city retains its wonderful urban layout, its stately buildings, squares, parks, museums, crafts and excellent restaurants where you savor the delicious cuisine of the region.
Also consider seeing the monarchs. There are so many the branches of the trees bend from their weight. Imagine!
Entrance to the hotel shown at left.
Built back in the 16th century, Morelia is a good example of urban planning which combines the ideas of the Spanish Renaissance with the Mesoamerican. Well-adapted to the slopes of the hills, its streets still follow the original layout. More than two hundred historic buildings, all in the region's characteristic pink stone, reflect the town's architectural history, revealing a masterly and eclectic blend of the medieval spirit with Renaissance, Baroque and neoclassical elements. Morelia was the birthplace of several important personalities of independent Mexico and has played a major role in the country's history.
Like Agustine the First. Jose Maria Morelos a hero in the Mexican war for independence.

In addition to the cultural sites close to the hotel vendors of colorful ballons dot the square in front of the hotel.
This colonial city of Morelia is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, and due to its breathtaking architecture, it's clear to see why. Besides being the capital of the State of Michoacan – and the state's largest and most important city, at that – it is also the seat of government institutions and the most prestigious higher education institute in the region: the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolas de Hidalgo (Michoacanan University of Saint Nicolas of Hidalgo). Like the rest of the state, Morelia has an enormous amount to offer you, from the colonial splendor of its buildings and elegant, vibrant streets, to a delicious regional cuisine bon apetit. Since 2003, the Morelia International Film Festival has also been held each October and has featured renowned directors such as Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu (who?), Quentin Tarantino, Pedro Almodovar, and Guillermo del Toro among others.
No Andy Warhol or Kutcher brothers nor Kenith Anger folks. But they run good stuff.
In the north (the United States and Canada) these fragile creatures are spread out, but in Mexico almost all of them go to the top of the same mountain in Angangueo.
They get there and say in butterfly language hey man what's happening? when ya get here?
The population is so dense that you can hear the sound of the flapping of their wings when the sun hits the trees and they take off to fly in the sun.
And when the monarchs are in the trees the branches bend from their weight.
During the summer these monarchs live in the northern US and Canada. At the end of the summer these creatures begin their southward migration and on November 1st punctually all the monarchs arrive in Michoacan.
They spend their winter in Michoacan, Mexico and mate and in the spring return north. As these fragile creatures have a lifespan of only a few months the monarchs who came to Mexico from Canada are not the ones who return, but their little kids; the baby monarchs.

Like the rest of the state, Morelia has an enormous amount to offer its visitors, from the colonial spectacle of its buildings and elegant, vibrant streets, to a delicious regional cuisine (That candidate with the wig is looking for a hot dog).
