Secret Tunnels of Slaves

Arts & Culture Editorial Interviews Press Releases

The Hacienda San José was built at the end of the 17th century, it used to be one of the main haciendas along the Peruvian coast, not because of the important production of sugar cane but also because of the number of slaves who worked there and who converted it in one of the most prosperous lands of the time. These days it is used as a tourist hotel, where many stories and vestiges show how Afro-Peruvian immigrants used to live in this part of Peru. However, in all honesty it is not what is in the farm or what is around it that makes it so interesting, it is what is underneath that makes it simply amazing!
