Villa Montaña Hotel & Spa is decorated with artworks from various places during the time of the viceroyalty and selected handicrafts. Its suites and rooms are nestled among patios and gardens decorated with sculptures of the region and in the middle of exotic plants, some of which are unique. For example, the elephant’s foot or ponytail palm (Beaucarnea recurvata), which is 475 years old, originally from the state of Guerrero, and weighed three tons when it was acquired 25 years ago; giant birds of paradise (Strelitzia nicolai) with white flowers; beautiful staghorn ferns (Platycerium bifurcatum); different varieties of cactuses; Japanese sago palms (Cycas revoluta); and many varieties of orchids that bloom in different times of the year make our gardens pleasant to walk through.
Michoacán has more than 300 types of orchids that you can observe and purchase at the botanical garden in the city. From the terrace and from the heated swimming pool, you can see the majestic, baroque cathedral in pink stones, as well as numerous monuments built since the 16th century. Both the shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, also called the temple of San Diego, with its typical baroque and rococo décor, and the magnificent Aqueduct, built in 1708, are worth a visit. They are just a short distance from the historical center
