Puruándiro de Calderón, which means Place of Hot Springs, is the capital city of the municipality of Puruándiro, is one of the 113 municipalities that make up the State of Michoacán de Ocampo, in Mexico. It is located in the north of the state, in the lowland region of the state. It is municipal seat and enjoys a temperate climate. It was founded by Juan de Villaseñor in 1522. In the tree-lined main garden there is a kiosk which indicates that its foundation was in 1565 and its sky is lined with wood. Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla spent one night in Puruándiro, and in 1965 President Gustavo Díaz Ordaz visited to commemorate his foundation.
The town used to have an aqueduct, which was discarded, leaving only some batteries, such as "la sirena". Now also near the church and the arches of the center is the Morelos garden that has a bust dedicated to the insurgent military of the war of independence of Mexico.
