Hacienda Pinsaqui

Stay at one of the most legendary haciendas in Ecuador, the hacienda Pinsaqui. Located 70 miles north of Quito, right on the Avenue of volcanoes. This is the place where our Liberator from the Spaniards, Simon Bolivar slept a few times, planning the independence from the Spanish Kingdom.

The hacienda was constructed as far back as 1790, and after a disastrous earthquake that shook the region in 1867, carefully restored. The building originally housed a textile workshop, employing nearly one thousand local weavers and spinners. In the late 1800s, the unique creations of these workers became internationally known, when the "bayetas", a special typical fabric of Pinsaqui, arrived at the World's Fair in Chicago.

Located right on the foothill of the "Taita Imbabura" which summit reaches 15000 ft, this hacienda has a beautiful panoramic view of the Otavalo valley.

Owned by the same Ecuadorian family for five generations since 1860's, Pinsaqui is definitely one of the highlights of the accommodation in Ecuador.
