Storyline

In the village of San Andres, the rivalry between two families the Valdes and the Ramirez is centered on "El Manantial", a beautiful fountain of water that happens to bathe the small property of the Valdes and not the neighboring ranch, the rich and prosperous hacienda "Piedras Grandes", where the best cattle are raised and is property of the Ramirez. But the spring is not the real reason for the hatred between the families. Justo Ramirez, married to Margarita Insunza, had a relationship with Francisca Rivero, wife of his enemy and neighbor Rigoberto Valdes. This relationship, founded in the betrayal, will cause the utmost bitterness and the destruction between the two families. The Valdes have a beautiful daughter named Alfonsina, who was born in the same year as Alejandro, the son and heir of the Ramirez. Although they have grown separately with their souls full of prejudices against their respective families, the two cannot avoid feeling attracted to each other. Margarita will not ...

Not bad but..
13 August 2002 | by kibjamSee all my reviews

Soaps from Mexico are so predictable including this one .But this one has also charming actors and great producer Carla Estrada who knows what"s doing.Adela Noruega.Mauricio Islas ,Daniela Romo and Mauricio Islas are right choice for family Ramirez and Valdez. Not bad but anyway 3 of 5.
