    Historical Background

    Our farm's history goes back to almost four hundred years. How much water has passed through the sinuous Huaura river, how many trees have grown and produced in more than three centuries of history… History that includes the political life of this beautiful country. It is well-known that thru these warm valleys passed Don José de San Martín, liberator and Supreme Protector (same as President) of Peru. He did have a house in Sayán and sometimes when the night fell en route, he did sleep in “Quipico”, name of the ruins that are at the base of the surrounding hills. It was Don Francisco de la Guerra y Daga who in 1650 commanded the building of the “San Juan de Quipico” chapel. Beside the years that have gone by, the decrepit state that the chapel is today was caused by the earthquake that took place in 1970. A few meters away, the old mansion from the Republican era is preserved. It was built during the last decades of the XIX century. Both constructions, house and chapel, have been declared Historic Monuments as per the decree law Nº 505-74-ED, from October 28, 1974. The restoration of these historic constructions is amongst the plans of the current owners. Of course! So many stories and so many happenings cannot be permanently forgotten!.
