Hacienda Panoaya

The Hacienda Panoaya is now printed on the new 200 banknotes.

The main hacienda building houses the Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Museum. Sor Juana come to live at Panoaya in 1651 when she was three years old to live with her mother and grandfather. She learned to read and write and stayed until she was sent to live in Mexico City in 1663. The hacienda lay in ruins for the last century or so until it was rehabilitated in 1999 at a cost of more than 10 million pesos.
