Luis Barragan Studio and garden tour
- Casa Luis Barragán, built in 1948, represents one of the most internationally transcendent works of contemporary architecture, as acknowledged by the UNESCO when included in their 2004 World Heritage list. It is the only individual property in Latin America to have achieved such a distinct honor, being — as stated by the UNESCO itself — a master piece in the development of the modern movement that merges traditional and vernacular elements, as well as diverse philosophical and artistic currents throughout time, into a new synthesis. Luis Barragán’s influence in global architecture is still in constant growth; and his house, faithfully kept just the way it was when inhabited by its author until his death in 1988, is one of the most visited sites in Mexico City by architects and art connoisseurs from around the world. This museum, which encloses its creator’s residency and studio, is property of the Government of the State of Jalisco and the Fundación de Arquitectura Tapatía Luis Barragán.

ABOUT YOUR HOSTS
Josephine Pulitano is a successful entrepreneur, hotelier and healer. After selling her three restaurants in Melbourne, Australia (and having a tendency to be curious by nature and a drive to experience all life has to offer), she moved to Guatemala. She currently lives there full time pursuing a life in the wellness world. For the past 6 years she has dedicated her time to teaching and facilitating yoga and spiritual retreats throughout Guatemala and working as a life + health coach. She specializes in Kundalini yoga, Hatha yoga, breath work, tantric therapies, trans-mediation, trauma release work, Taoist and many other complimentary practices. Her knowledge and style was gathered through trainings in Bali, India, Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, Thailand, Denmark, Australia and Romania. She gains inspiration on her vast travels through 70 countries, immersing in the local cultures and diving into her passions of food, hospitality, design, art, music, travel and all things ancient wisdom. Josephine recently revamped and opened a new hotel and restaurant in Australia returning to her love of hospitality and experience.
Jess Bercovici is the founder of Casa de Stela and has owned and operated the business for the last 12 years. She first traveled to Latin America in 2007 as an archaeologist and immediately fell in love with the textiles and ancient crafts in Guatemala. Her introduction to tourism happened by chance in Guatemala in 2015 when her first of two bnb's were opened. It was in this space that she hosted craft courses and weeklong retreats for artists wanting to immerse themselves in stunning Guatemala. In the last 7 years, these programs have grown to include experiences in Mexico City, Oaxaca and New Mexico.
