home Featured, Morelia Exploring and searching for tunnels in central Morelia would cost 300,000 pesos
Morelia, Michoacán.- About 300 thousand pesos require the municipality to continue the exploration of the structures presumed to constitute the tunnels in the Historic Center, said Roberto Monroy García, Secretary of Tourism of Morelia.
While acknowledging that investigations into the alleged tunnels that the Micho-Ana capital would have in its central area are «a little stopped», as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Monroy García noted that a subsurface exploration study is intended at a depth of no more than four metres, to continue identifying gaps , by their regularity, could be tunnels.
This exploration would take place in public spaces and would follow up on the analysis previously carried out by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
The Secretary of Tourism of Morelia mentioned that he will meet this week with staff from the Michoacán Center of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) to assess the relevance of doing these work and «see what there is, if any».
After the opening of tunnels in Puebla, as a tourist attraction, morelia projected the research of the tunnels that would be presumed to exist under the Historic Center, with the expectation of this 2020 to enable at least one for public access. However, the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic led to the suspension of these projects, which currently remain in uncertain conditions.
