From La Bufa, we rode a taxi nearly half an hour down the hill and to the far side of town, to El Acueducto (an ancient aqueduct) and the Ex Plaza de Toros San Pedro (a old bull fighting ring, now turned into the Quinta Real Hotel), and the Sierra de Alica park with dancing fountains and rotunda. The ride cost $40 pesos (about $3.25 US), though the starting price that one driver quoted was $50 pesos. Back in Fresno, it cost nearly that much just to get into a taxi.
The aqueduct is being overhauled, but it still looks amazing. We finally got to see one. We’d meant to visit the Morelia aqueduct earlier this year, but there were so many things to see and do there that we simply forgot.
The bullring-turned-hotel was also amazing. The hotel is literally built on top and inside of the old bullring, though we’re sure the bullring itself was also renovated as part of the hotel construction.
