  • If you go to Guanajuato you have to take the time to visit this place. This former hacienda, now Museum, is spectacular, their gardens, their architecture, their furniture, but above all the small Golden Chapel; they give an idea of glamour and elegance in which lived the landowners Lords of the time. Be sure to visit it.
