One of the best and most historic haciendas we visited during our trip to MX. The gardens are beautiful and the place is rich of history and stories. You can wander around on your own and admire the gardens on the inside but if it wasn't for the tour guide Juan Carlos, I probably would've never appreciated or enjoyed the... More

I think this was my favorite site to visit in Guanajuato. I think . . . There are many... Here are my thoughts: PROs: - beautiful, well-maintained, lush - peaceful - has different gardens in different styles -small restaurant on site (I didn't eat there). -Cheap entry. 25 pesos. 5 more pesos if you want to take pictures (you do)....

This place wasn't on the radar when we planned our trip to Guanajuato. However after looking at the reviews on TA we decided to take the tip out there. It is probably a short taxi ride from the center however we decided to walk and it took us about 40 minutes give or take from the Mummy museum where we... More

My wife and I loved the extensive grounds of this historic hacienda. The inside was also well worth seeing. It gives you a good idea of how the wealthy landowners and mine owners of Guanajuato lived.

We visited this beautiful site on a Thursday just before noon and saw only three other visitors in all the time we were there. This is truly a beautiful, peaceful attraction and well worth visiting. Unfortunately on our visit we asked for a guide but never did find one. After reading the reviews about how the guides enhanced the tour,... More

Decided to check this out based on reviews I had seen on trip advisor! This placed lived up to the hype. The gardens are all very nice, and was a nice quiet, short trip out of the hustle and bustle of the city!

This site has been well maintained and has most of its decorations and furniture which makes it all very interesting to see. The guide spoke English very well and had a good story to recite. Be sure to take one of the local guides. The gardens are well worth a walk around.

This has got to be my favorite place in the whole city, peaceful, beautiful and magical. It is a trip back in time it is beautifully preserved and its history is fascinating. Just walking thru its many gardens is a joy. You will walk a little but it will be worth it, The hacienda has several modern amenities for the... More
