The sunburned-orange exterior stands in contrast to the seven green courtyard gardens. The interior features lavish decoration with period furniture, paintings, tapestries, and traditional garments on display. Take time to view the chapel that houses an original 15th century Spanish gothic altarpiece of the Cathedral of Jaen. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Guanajuato holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Museo Ex-Hacienda San Gabriel de Barrera and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

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.
