Following a memorable stay at Hacienda Pinsaqui in Ecuador's northern sierras, Sue Appleby wanted to find out more about the Hacienda and its history. The land where the Hacienda stands once belonged to the Caranqui confederacy, was briefly part of the Inca Empire, and later came under Spanish rule before becoming part of Simon Bolivar's "Gran Colombia." The Hacienda offered hospitality to Bolivar, and played a part in bringing to an end the border conflict between Ecuador and Columbia in the 1860s. The Larrea family bought the Hacienda in the late 19th century and continued to offer a warm welcome to travelers while managing one of the largest spinning and weaving workshops in the Otavalo area. Today the Freile-Larrea family continues to offer the modern traveler a warm welcome and a sense of the Hacienda's fascinating history.  This short booklet is written for visitors to Hosteria Hacienda Pinsaqui and others who would like to learn something of its history. Suggestions are made for further reading at the end of the booklet, but this publication does not presume to be a detailed or in-depth study of the Hacienda.
