A lovely photo essay of Colombia's country homes Mar 23, 2003
This book is a wonderful testimony to what was once a lovely quality of life in Colombia's vast countryside. Some photographic essays boast of majestic architectural beauty. Still and all, the most important aspect of this book is that the camera's lens objectively captures the serene beauty and vitality of Colombia's regional richness. Moreover, the fine and creative presentation of some Hacienda's are absolutely breathtaking. "Casa De Hacienda: Architecture in the Colombian Countryside," is a polished presentation of professional photography. It is much more than a coffee table book...it is a slice of life in Colombia.

Beautiful Book! Spectacular pictures of Colombian Haciendas. Jan 25, 1998
I'm familiar with some of these houses, but I gained new insight on the history and architectural characteristics of these country homes by readiing the text. Filled with outstanding photographs, I enjoyed browsing for hours. I strongly recommend this book !!
