MORELIA


The capital of the Mexican state of Michoacán, is also one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico and a world heritage site (named by UNESCO in 1992) for its imposing colonial architecture as well as its historical importance as the ideological cradle of Mexico's independence .

Michoacán, the state in which Morelia is located, is one of the entities with the greatest wealth of cultures originating in Mexico. Here, the great Purhépecha empire is known, long before the arrival of the Spaniards, known for never having fallen under Aztec domination, which controls central Mexico and much of Central America, which gives this culture characteristics unique in relation to the rest of the country.


Its varied and delicious cuisine is a clear example of cultural wealth, but without a doubt, one of the greatest challenges for visitors is experienced during the celebration of the Night of the Dead, a festival of great color and symbolism for the inhabitants of this land.


Morelia has always had a great artistic-cultural vocation, which has manifested itself especially through music, for some examples, it is the seat of one of the oldest and most important conservatories in Mexico, and the birthplace of prominent musicians such as Manuel Bernal


For 10 years, CMMAS adds the touch of innovation to a long local tradition of great musicians and artists in an unbeatable environment for creativity.

A city that is well worth knowing and enjoying!

TRADITIONS


Michoacán has a great variety of folklore, musical and dance tradition that manifests itself in its pagan-religious festivals. This cultural tradition is the result of the indigenous and Spanish heritage that, when merged, gave rise to our Michoacan identity. Proof of this are the celebrations of Night of the Dead, Holy Week and countless religious holidays in the interior of the state.

The native dances represent a narrow bond of union.
