Ruins of the Hacienda de la Erre
Built-in the first half of the 18th century, the Hacienda de la Erre was one of the largest estates in Guanajuato. On its facade is a plaque that tells of an important event that took place in Dolores: “On September 16th, 1810, at midday, the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla arrived and had lunch here in the house. Once the meal was over, having established the Insurgent Army’s first general staff, he gave the order to march towards Atotonilco, by saying: ‘March on, sirs, let us go; we have taken on this task, and now we shall see who among us can rise to the challenge’”.
