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.

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!

Carlos speaks excellent English. Perhaps your hotel can call for you and get the information you wish. And reserve Carlos for you.
