Visited here had lunch. Did not think the guides made as much of the historic value of this place as could have been.

Interesting to learn the history, good for a quick stop only. You really need the right tour guide to make this location a worthwhile visit. There isn't much to see at this location, no great views, but definitely some cool artifacts.

I wish the foundation would have enough $$ to clean up the litter surrounding this landmark... The small museum is wonderful. It recommended a book about the history of barons of sugar cane, which I hope to order & read!

A windmill and a pile of rubble, a bumpy road to get there and a let down when you finally get there
