Salvatierra

It’s the oldest Exhacienda in Guanajuato. The Carmelite friars were in charge. However, in the 1920s the property was distributed among the former peons, which caused the 12,273 hectare large estate to end.

Currently you can walk through its corridors, barns and chapel, which give the place a supernatural atmosphere due to it’s abandoned. On the guided walks you can see the frescoes that are preserved in the chapel, as well as the ceilings arches, where bats live today. There are also remains of Revolution time furniture, where it’s said that ghosts have been seen sitting, especially on the benches inside the barns.

Another supernatural story talks about a soldier’s specter who usually appears in an old train car inside the Exhacienda. The caretakers claim to see him prowling around the barn and later, the property.
