(305 votes)

Doña Bárbara telenovelaBárbara is an attractive woman raised in the thick jungle by a band of Venezuelan smugglers. She was madly in love with the handsome Asdrubal until tragedy smashed everything. When dome bandits rape her and butcher her beau, a mad desire for vengeance against men overtakes her.

Bárbara seduces the wealthy landowner Lorenzo Barquero and steals his fortune. Grief-stricken, he descends into misery and alcoholism. Their destructive relationship produces a lovely daughter, Marisela, who is forced to live in despair with her tormented father.

Fifteen years later, Lorenzo’s dashing cousin Santos Luzardo opens old wounds. This ambitious doctor from Caracas returns to claim ownership of the family land. He soon discovers Doña Bárbara controls the area with an iron glove, using sorcery and seduction to force her will on the locals.

Santos refuses to surrender and fights to save his cousin and educate young Marisela. Bárbara falls in love with Santos. As a result of her love, she is driven to do anything, as long as it means that Santos will be by her side.

However, she lived with one of men who raped her and she has a daughter from him. She manipulates people with the help of violence and seduction. She lives on her hatred and revenge. She never missed the chance to tell her daughter that she was born in hatred and Bárbara was even ready to sell her.
