The haciendas of Mexico were part of an economic system that began with the Spanish in the sixteenth century, similar to the feudal system of Europe. They were efficient farms and manufacturing centers that produced meat and other products for export. Over time, the haciendas became symbols of economic health and culture, adorned with architecture, furniture and art from all over the world. Like the southern plantations of the United States, the haciendas reinforced the caste system, based on race, with the hacendados as masters and the Maya or indigenous as laborers. Most of the Yucatecan haciendas in the 19th century produced henequen rope, a plant variety of the agave cactus, which was exported by the growing transport industry.View Tour
