Hacienda El Paraiso, El Cerrito

4.7
#7 of 28 in Sightseeing in Valle del Cauca Department
Landmark Tourist Spot
The lush scenery of an old sugarcane plantation comes to life at Hacienda El Paraiso. The hacienda was formerly owned by author Jorge Isaccs who became famous for his book “Maria” (which was later adapted into a movie). The gardens feature a peaceful, romantic vibe coupled with the subtle sound of the local river flowing through the surrounding canals. Browse the small shop offering wine tastings and scented candles, and later relax under the shade of the gazebos while enjoying a traditional beverage. Guides will narrate the story of Ephraim and Mary while giving you a tour of the home here, bringing the literature to life.

  • If you like history Well you have to visit this place The story of true love between to young people Efrain and Maria The book is called Maria If you can get your hands on the book before visiting, it will open your eyes to this amazing love story
  • A beautiful hacienda in a beautiful part of Colombia. It's probably a bit more fascinating if you've read the literature ("Maria") that is set in this home. The surrounding carnival atmosphere somewhat detracts from its charms.
  • Its a very very nice and beatiful place to know about the history of colombia, and its valle del cauca, the hacienda is where one of the most iconic books "la maria" a romantic story, takes place, also free samples of wine of the region are offer there.
  • Very beutifull place specialy if you had read La Maria. Its basicaly the lace where the novel was written and staged.
  • Friendly and tourist place of a literary historical romance.
