A Night at Hacienda San Antonio El Puente, Cuernavaca, Mexico

For years, I have been enamored with Spanish architecture of colonial origins, from Mérida and Oaxaca City to Guanajuato, Puebla, and Cuernavaca, Mexico. Back the day, it was called “New Spain” during the colonial era of Mexico in the 16th to 19th centuries. Mexico has more sites on the UNESCO World Heritage list than any other country in the Americas with its 29 sites, many of them boasting some of the richest Spanish Colonial architecture out there.

So you can imagine how delighted I was to find such a magnificent hacienda in Xochitepec, Mexico. It is a mere 15 minutes from the city of eternal springs, Cuernavaca, Mexico and only an hour (in good traffic) from Mexico City.

Yet it feels like a world away as I enter into this magical world of baroque architecture, boveda-brick ceilings, and multiple arches balanced with the traditional hacienda style and catholic symbolism, yet with modern luxuries.

Hacienda San Antonio El Puente is a glorious example of one of the famous hacienda’s that dot the horizon throughout the lands of Mexico. Hacienda San Antonio de Puente is a remarkably well-preserved 3700-hectare estate. In fact, it once produced sugar cane and then sugar cane alcohol and was founded during the 18th century. Throughout the Mexican Revolution, the production was halted, as evidenced by a cannon ball impact on the factory chimney. Today, the owners turned the hacienda into a true Mexican villa for all to enjoy. It is perfect for multi-generational families, weddings, and honeymoons.

The state of Morales is the place where history birthed the elements of the hacienda Mexican culture. This land gave birth to legends and was a place that was once a necessary and a practical way of life.  It has now become a vision of great treasure for its guests to “ewe” and “ahh” over.

It is almost like a work of art. Everywhere you look, there are multiple arches, whispers of water and water fountains, and massive well-kept gardens. At night I felt like I was in a courtyard of stars with the cool evening breezes! With time trapped inside of the rocks and the formation of the massive trees on the property, the raw beauty of the land shines through as well as that amazing Spanish style architecture that I love so much.
