Uruapan, where everything blooms, the city that sings with the river

Uruapan is a synonym of fertility. World capital of avocados, Uruapan rises between fruit fields to the infinity, among the exuberance of the warm land and the Purepechan plateau. Side by side with the Cupatizio river, the singing river, the noble Indians found a resting place. Later, the privileged weather gave the Franciscans the idea to build a new hospital town to extend the evangelization of the region. Here, in the huatapera, Don Vasco passed away.

Fray Juan of Saint Miguel planned the city with nine neighborhoods to arrange every social group: Spaniards, creoles, Indians, noble Indians, mestizos and blacks. In the center of the city, the Hospital of the Real Purisima de la Concepcion was built, better known as a la huatapera, that nowadays is home of the interesting Museum of Art and Indian Traditions. The Huatapera, with its wide wood and wool eaves, and the unexpected framework of its windows is a place you must visit.

The second mandatory visit in Uruapan is the Barranca of Cupatitzio, as the National Park Lic. Eduardo Ruiz is known. Idyllic paths accompany the flow of the Cupatitzio river, from its spring, the Knee of the Devil. A trip to listen the whispers of the river and birds singing in a path full of exuberant vegetation. The perfect scape of the daily noise.
