Michoacán

Natural landscapes, religious icons, art and culture, admirable architecture and gastronomy that seduces your palate make Zamora a jewel of western Mexico. Pack your bags and get to know this great metropolis located in a wide valley in the northwestern part of the state of Michoacán.

Zamora de Hidalgo is the official name of this municipality that stands out for being the main producer of red fruits at a national level such as strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, although the great history it has and its culture will transport you to a place of colonial charm.

A trip to the past will take you to the year 1574, when the Villa of Zamora was founded in the Tzirondaro Valley by order of the Viceroy of New Spain, Martin Enriquez de Almanza. But in the 20th century the splendor of this place arrived with the innovations and new technologies. Today, it is the most important economic center of the entity.

There is a lot to know in the region, the best way to visit the historical center is on foot and the place to start is the Santuario Guadalupano (Guadalupan Sanctuary), just by looking at it you will fall in love with its neogothic style architecture and its steeples, the highest of any cathedral in the country. Its construction dates from 1898.

It continues with the Centro Regional de las Artes de Michoacán (“Regional Center of the Arts of Michoacán”), a beautiful building with a modernist architectural design, with temporary exhibition rooms, a library, classrooms and artistic workshops.

Let yourself be surprised by the neoclassical style of the Teatro Obrero de Zamora and the Catedral de Zamora, built in 1838.

Shopping at the Mercado Morelos is a little different from what we know, because it has an imposing neoclassical facade built in the early 20th century. Here you will find a great variety of typical candies of the region such as chongos, jamoncillos, cubiertas and cocadas; as well as handicrafts.
