Casa de Hacienda: Architecture in the Colombian Countryside

Front Cover
Traveling the country in search of the most significant aspects of Colombia's colonial ranch houses, this book brings to life the convergence of decisive elements of the country's past and tradition. These ranch houses were the scene of struggles, epiphanies, and downfalls in the country's history—all evoked through the point of view of a historian specializing in architecture.
