Hacienda San Gaspar: Bridal Paradise

In Architecture & Design by Isabella Moreno

If you are thinking about getting married in a place with history, architecture and beautiful gardens surrounding, Hacienda San Gaspar in Cuernavaca is the ideal space. The hacienda was built during the time of Hernán Cortés in 1614 and constructed by his son Martín Cortés. It was used for sugar production, not like the typical residential haciendas of the time.

The hacienda’s use and owners have been changing over the years, while the huge stone walls are witness of countless experiences throughout time and history. For example, an aqueduct whose structure dates back to the 17th century, crosses the main space, the same one that in previous years brought water from the Juitepec River.

Hacienda San Gaspar has also been used to produce sugar. The vaults in the lower part of the old house are where the sugar was produced and is today considered a natural spectacle. The central patio was used as the sundeck where the finished, refined sugar used to rest and where today, is the perfect setting to celebrate love.

The imposing architectural structure of Hacienda San Gaspar is of considerable size, formed by architectural elements from the 17th century until the end of the 20th century. The architectural history is a fascinating one and it creates a perfect atmosphere to celebrate the best day of your life. Do not hesitate to visit this place and to witness its Mexican essence and architecture, and to imagine the magic of love within this space.
