Hacienda Panoaya

Amecameca

The nun, writer and philosopher Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz lived with her grandfather on a farm in Amecameca during her childhood, 3 to 8, from 1651 and 1656. At Hacienda Panoaya, Juana Inés de Asbaje Ramírez de Santillana learned to read and write, acquired notions of mathematics, learned Nahuatl and took interest in poetry to the point she gave her first steps in this art.

The old home of the rebel Sor Juana, who devoured books in times when women were forbidden to study, has now become a cultural, ecological and amusement park with activities suitable for all family.

The old manor house—17th century jewel in the Baroque style—where Sor Juana’s grandfather had a magnificent library, has become in the ten-rooms Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Museum, where it’s possible to imagine what life was like almost four centuries ago.

The park also has the Museo Internacional de los Volcanes (International Museum of the Volcanoes), which explains the geological phenomenon of the imposing Amecameca’s landscape stars.

On the other hand, the hacienda has ecological areas, attractions for those seeking strong emotions and other spaces for fun. The public’s favorite section is the Parque de los Venados Acariciables (Park of the Cuddly Deer), where there are several species and, as the name suggests, you can feed and touch the deer. There are also zip lines, tractor rides, bike paths and an aviary, among other amenities.
