We enjoyed the peacefulness of the museum Exhacienda San Gabriel de Barrera. We were virtually the only ones there. We followed the signs for the self-guided tour and got to almost all the themed gardens (see photos). This is an arid area, and it is...More
This was a wonderful place to spend the morning. The Hacienda with its furnishings is spectacular and the gardens are even more so. We were totally surprised to be almost alone in this gorgeous place. It really does give you a clue about how the...More
As we viewed the casa, I had a very sad feeling. What a glorious place it used to be, and how badly it needs some maintenance and care now.

During Festival Cervantino, the patio garden area is used as an intimate music venue. The setting is lovely and the acoustics are quite good. We saw and heard an outstanding performance by Brazilian 7-string guitarist Yamandu Costa here, and the sound was excellent. The grounds...More
