As seen in our popular feature 20 Spectacular Abandoned Mansions of the World, this empty period property is one of many grand houses built during the late 19th and early 20th centuries by European settlers returning to Spain from the New World having made their fortunes. Reflecting the architectural style of the old Spanish and Portuguese colonies in the Americas, the abandoned mansion features several ornate balconies and a grand central staircase within.

According to Territorio Abandonado, the house was externally renovated around 12 years ago by a Mexican family.  But due to a death in the family the restoration was never completed and the property has remained uninhabited ever since. Despite some inevitable wear and tear brought on by years of abandonment, internally the house does not appear to be in bad condition and will hopefully one day be restored to its former glory.
