Castro Adobe State Historic Park Guided Walk

May 7 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

Come join us for a guided walk at Rancho San Andres Castro Adobe State Historic Park in Watsonville on Saturday, May 7, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Accompanied by State Parks interpreters and docents, you will stroll back in time to the Mexican Rancho period of the mid-1800s. That’s when the two-story Castro Adobe hacienda was built on the 9,000-acre rancho granted to Jose Juaquin Castro and became one of the social centers of the Central California Coast. See displays and hear of the Vaquero culture and skills. Learn about the cattle, horses and sheep that ranged wild on the mostly unfenced grasslands of Rancho San Andres. Experience the Fandango room where music and dance were enjoyed frequently. Visit one of the last remaining indoor cocinas in California and hear about the bear and bull fights.

Reservations are required for each individual attending this event: https://santacruzstateparks.as.me/CastroAdobeOpenHouse

Masks are required on all tours, regardless of vaccination status.
