Ex-Hacienda de Chautla.

Since my brother-in-law, Carlos, has been doing a bit more traveling than we have, I will be posting photos to the places he has been going to.
This beautiful place is called the Ex-Hacienda de Chiautla. It is in the Municipality of San Martín Texmelucan, in the state of Puebla. It must be about one and a half hour (max) from Mexico City. This place got to have 60,000 hectares of land (an incredible amount), and it reached its maximum splendor during the Porfiriato. The owner then was the Archbishop of Oaxaca, Eulogio Gillow Zavala.
The place is really beautiful, and since the state of Puebla is colder than Mexico City, the leaves of the trees change color during winter. Thank-you Carlos for the photos and the information.
Please enjoy them.....

The construction remind me of a Gingerbread House.

This shot is incredible. Mexico doesn't really have distinct
seasons, so we marvel at places where leaves change colors.

I like this fountain very much.

Hope you enjoyed this short trip. Tomorrow, another of Carlos's trips. Hasta Mañana.
