MEXICAN HACIENDAS: HISTORIC ICONS OF AGELESS GRACE
Haciendas de Mexico and Ranchos are survivors of historic fate that began with the arrival of the explorer Spaniards in 1524 to what became known then as New Spain and developed as personal empires before and after the Mexican Independence in 1810 until the Mexican Revolution of 1910 and the promulgation of the Constitution of 1917 with all the agrarian laws which initiated the partition of all the great landholdings. Each of these remaining icons possesses its own special historic relationship to the Land, the People—their social life and their politics-- and the Spirit of Mexico, which is celebrating its 200 Independence Anniversary and 100 Anniversary of the Mexican Revolution.

The Mexican Estate Hacienda was originally not only the family home for Spanish Nobles but also a workplace, a place of leisure and of religion—in short, a closed and self-sufficient rural world in which the landowners held authority over every facet of daily life of the workers engaged in agricultural and/or livestock production.
The most glorious of these architectural labyrinths of structures and special forms was begun near San Miguel de Allende / Dolores Hidalgo / San Felipe, in the state of Guanajuato, in the 1500´s and became known as the Hacienda San Diego del Jaral de Berrio. The first Marques del Jaral de Berrio extended the size of the hacienda from the State of Durango to near the City of Mexico so that his cattle could graze freely from the Valle of Mexico to the far north, known as Nueva Viscaya (España), without passing through territory not his own.
Our selection of Haciendas, Ranchos and Equestrian Properties are all about Mexican history and the Preservation of these architectural legacies. These properties should be considered personal investments of timeless endurance that will enhance one’s own future legacy. It is one’s opportunity to engage in a lifestyle of old world tradition, elegance and romance.
