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.

Recorriendo el país para encontrar los aspectos más significativos de las haciendas coloniales colombianas, este libro revive una época de nostalgia y elegancia en la era del país a través de estas construcciones. En ellas se desplegaron escenarios de luchas, advenimientos, epifanías y ocasos. Al evocar este mundo del ayer, la obra logra recuperar la visión de la historia colombiana de manera justa y sugerente con el conocimiento de un historiador especializado en la arquitectura.
