The hacienda main building is a drab gray on the outside, only its size and the double Moorish arch at the entrance to the property is impressive. But the inside of the living quarters is another matter. Each room is different and luxuriously appointed. Growing...More

This is a stunningly beautiful location (if you like the "ruins" asthetic) with a ton of history involved. You will need a guide, but it is not guaranteed that you will have one who speaks English. This makes a nice stop on the way to...More

I went to the Hacienda with William Lawson Tours and it was a great afternoon. The Hacienda is looked after and in moderately good shape, which added to the mystique. As we wondered through the buildings and around the landscape, my tour guide told me...More
