Discovering a Secret Garden in Morelia, Mexico

Perched atop a mountain overlooking the city of Morelia sits the Villa Montaña Hotel. Greenery cascades over the walls of the hotel, down into the city. Inside, purple flower petals are sprinkled over the grounds, and green vines reach for the sky. Statues of fish, angels, saints, and lions rest on every corner keeping you company on your walk through the garden, while monarch butterflies the size of your hand brush your face. A piano player on the restaurant balcony above keys his way through familiar Mexican melodies, keeping your walking tempo at an energetic pace. Finally, at the end of the path, the trees part and a brightly colored refreshing blue pool awaits you. Welcome to Morelia's secret garden.
