This historic 18th century hacienda and adjoining gardens were built by one of the city's colonial silver barons, and is worthwhile visit while in Guanajuato. The hacienda offers a look into the past and the surrounding gardens are well maintained. There's also a nice outdoor...More

This place is so beautiful. Make sure you take good walking shoes because it's huge. We got there at 5pm and I believe they close at 6pm so we didn't get to see half of it. Make sure you give yourself at least two hours...More

We did this tour with Sergio, a guide from Plaza Union. Would not have been near as interesting and educational without him. Learned much about the history and methods of mining in GTO. In addition the gardens were well kept and architecture was typical and...More

Lovely, tranquil, totally deserted when I was there, lots of lovely gardens to amble through and benches to rest upon.

This ex-Hacienda provides a nice shady stroll through a series of formal gardens. The tour is self-guided, the route is clearly marked and the gardens are clearly named. There is little explanation of the plants or of the history of the gardens. At the end...More

My son has been twice and Carlos was there both times. We were the only visitors when I went. I want to emphasize that there is no cost for the tour and the guide is dependent on tips.

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