Sitio Guáimaro

Landmark in Valle de los Ingenios

Seven kilometers east of the Manaca Iznaga turnoff, travel for another 2km south and you'll find the former estate of Don Mariano Borrell, a wealthy early 19th-century sugar merchant. The seven stone arches on the facade lead to frescoed rooms, now a restaurant featuring an old-fashioned press or traipiche for sugarcane juice.
