Hacienda de Jalpa Museum
Towards the end of the 19th century, Guadalupe Cánovas inherited from her father the land where the Hacienda de Jalpa would be created. Today, only the old house of the original construction has survived, which currently functions as a museum. Around it you will find some of the buildings that formed part of the farm: the barns, the company store, the administrator’s house and the Santuario de Guadalupe (Guadalupe’s Sanctuary).
Two thirds of the property were comprised of valleys and hills and its system of irrigation–one of the most impressive in the country–watered the land using dams and canals. Cereals, alfalfa, clover, and high-quality grass were some of the crops cultivated here.
