Charming, unique and architecturally stunning, Hacienda Sarria sits on a six-acre private property in Kitchener.
The original structure was built in 1902, and was Canada’s first beet sugar mill. Much of the original building was later destroyed, but in 2004 extensive renovations on the remaining structure began, transforming it into one of Waterloo Region’s premiere event venues. The building itself was inspired by a walk in Northern Spain known as “The Road to Santiago de Compostela.” Hacienda Sarria has detailed ironwork, wooden doors, and stone masonry that was meticulously crafted by local trades.
