Ex-Hacienda Nogueras

Tour of the old sugar mill - Comala, Colima - Mexico

We got a tour behind the walls of the Ex-Hacienda and parts of the old sugar mill that are being restored with the help of the University of Colima. In a rent exchange program along with funding for the restoration, the University will use the large building for conferences and classes. When ready the new area will be part of the larger museum complex.

Most of the work is being done to the large building below that was converted from sugar in the '50's to a plant producing essence of lemons. Before that the history it's not known. Emilia, who is part of the original family that owned the Hacienda and current manager, gave us this tour and she has hopes this new section will be open in about a year.
