  • The entrance is opposite the chapel of our Lady of the assumption, commented it that there are no signs indicating and there are always people asking how to get there. Is a small tour in auto (not allow stop are) to see a beautiful work architectural of Alejandro Bustillo. By the importance historical, the walk invites to the reflection and enter is more in the history of the property.

  • A place of dreams for rides within a forest on the banks of the Lake, a restaurant with very good view and excellent service.

  • We were in combi entering towards the road to tour the residence. Not found me it so interesting. With little time to visit, I would not lose time to visit it.
