Hacienda Pinsaqui

A uniquely restored colonial hacienda full of history.

The Hacienda was first constructed in 1790 and was originally a textile workshop, employing 1,000 local weavers and spinners. Fabrics woven in Pinsaquí were exported to the United States in the late 1800's.

Among its illustrious guests is General Simón Bolívar, who usually spent the night at Pinsaquí on his trips to Bogotá. An important Treaty between Colombia and Ecuador was signed at the Hacienda, and much history is in its halls.

The main structure of the Hacienda was destroyed by an earthquake in 1867 and has now been restored and adapted with 16 ample and comfortable rooms, with heavy ornate beds and fireplaces, for its guests. Pinsaquí has a unique atmosphere with long corridors, wide walls, antique candelabra and furniture, with echoes of sounds and voices from the past. With three centuries of history, romantic Hacienda Pinsaquí invites you to be a part of its magic and its legends. Hacienda Pinsaqui has belonged to the Freile family since 1888.
