    Passageways

    passageway

    The main buildings surrounded the main courtyard.

    But what was so nice that there were interior passageways all around this courtyard. These passageways had plenty of big windows, so the view on the interior garden was marvellous.

    Also these gangways were filled with old furniture and antique. Via these gangways you could go to the meeting rooms, the television room and the historical main living room.

    It was great to sit here in one of these old chairs while you were reading a book.

    Another Courtyard

    the smaller courtyard

    Beside the big, main Courtyard, there was another, a smaller courtyard. Also the buildings which surrounded this courtyard were smaller. I think this were the rooms for the servants, the staff.

    Now al these rooms were changed in rooms for the guests.
    Some of our group had a room in the main part of the Hacienda, with big rooms with big ceilings.
    I had a room in the servant's part. But that was not so bad at all (see my accommodation tips)

    Great History

    green, lots of green

    This Hacienda dates from 1695. It is one of the oldest colonial haciendas of Ecuador.

    Many important people stayed here.

    This hacienda was very loved by many scientists who came to Ecuador.

    One of the most important is Alexander Von Humboldt, a German scientist who studied Cotopaxi's volcanic activity as well as the plants. The Von Humboldt suite still remembers him.

    Chapel

    the Chapel

    It was great to walk around and to discover the inner courtyard.

    This hacienda has a great historical background. There was even a Chapel in this courtyard.

    The interior was completely white (same as the outside), and the decorations were sober.

    The main Courtyard

    beautiful garden

    I wanted to see the main courtyard from a higher level, in order to make a picture and get a better view.

    So I did search for the stairs, to go to the upper floor. Finally I did find these stairs, but there was a sign that it was forbidden to go up, it was only allowed for the guests which had their rooms there.

    I believe the better rooms and suites were on the upper floors.

    But curious as I am I tried it anyway, I went up and at the highest floor I opened a window to make a picture.
    On my way up I did not see anyone, and no one did see me. So no problem at all, to make these pictures.
