Our trip wrapped up with a visit to this beautiful ex-hacienda on our way out of town.  The family that owned the hacienda was descended from those that discovered the La Valenciana silver vein in 1558, a mine that for 250 years produced 20% of the world’s silver. So as you can see, the beautiful furnishings and gardens probably still amounted to chump change considering the wealth that was coming from this particular silver mine.
