HACIENDA. A Spanish word for a country house or estate. Some haciendas were plantations, mines, or even factories. Many haciendas combined these productive activities.


Hacienda - wikipedia

The hacienda system of Argentina, parts of Brazil, Mexico and New Granada was a system of large land-holdings that were an end in themselves as the marks of status, which produced little for export beyond the hacienda itself, which aimed for self-sufficiency in everything but luxuries meant for display, which were destined for the handful of people in the circle of the patrón or owner.
