  • Beautiful hacienda! A bit worn through time but very worth a visit. Was there in morning and the tranquility with the fresh breeze was delightful. Truly a little oasis. Taxis always easy to find up the hill from the entrance so transportation is no problem. A highlight of the area.
  • Beautiful gardens and a nice old house built at the end of the 17th century for the family of a local mine owner. There is a cafe on-site with some snacks and drinks.
