San Felipe, Hacienda El Puertecito, Hacienda Los Gavilaes, and Hacienda El Cubo.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. the doors of the Biblioteca will open to receive visitors who will be participating in this “journey through time”.

The visitors will be offered fresh coffee and cupcakes while listening to live music provided by the musicians who occasionally enliven the Café Santa Ana.

Before boarding the vans that will take them on the tour, the group will hear a brief explanation of the tour from Lic. Santiago González, a passionate authority on Mexican history. He specializes in the various haciendas located in central Mexico.

The tour will begin at 9am. The first stop will be in the beautiful town of San Felipe, known as Villa de San Felipe during the colonial period. This town received the name “Torres Mochas” because the main tower and the bell tower of the city’s parish church remained incomplete for a period of 243 years, from 1641 to January 1884. The municipal authorities will receive the visitors there and then the trip will continue with a tour of San Felipe. We will visit the Casa de Hidalgo Museum, Casa Benito Juárez (where Benito Juarez lived), the Parish Church, and two impressive chapels. The tour will continue to El Puertecito and the Hacienda Los Gavilanes, two small,  very old haciendas. We don’t know the exact date of their construction but we do know that they served as refuges during certain battles. Outside of El Puertecito and under the shade of a lush mesquite, there will be a “break” for a taste of an “opulent” mezcal from Jaral de Berrio, as well as sodas and some snacks to provide energy for the last stop. The last stop is the Hacienda del Cubo, an estate owned by the Count of Jaral de Berrio, surrounded by the myths and legends, mountains, caves, springs, ancient buildings, and the events that made it part of history.

Within this hacienda the guests will be greeted with a meal specially prepared by the ladies who are the traditional cooks in the town of Cube. Mexican dishes with fresh handmade tortillas and water mixed with different fruits such as guava, watermelon, and melon will be served.

The return to the Library will be around 5pm. You may be tired but you will have had  a “unique” experience so that you can tell your friends all about the true Mexico.
