Granja Porcón

Granja Porcón, a gigantic hacienda (9,500ha) nationalised by the army in 1968 then taken over again by the Evangelists in 1985, today employs nearly a thousand people. It is a genuine village with its own Plaza de Armas, church, dairy and craft workshops. It is part of an ambitious reforestation programme, which exploits wood, hence the presence of a sawmill and paper factory. It is also home to a lodge and an interesting animal park where endangered species live in semi-liberty.
