This 16th-century colonial manor is historic through and through, the product of a sensitive five-year restoration. Once home to the conquistador Diego de Almagro (and later to the Libertador Simón Bolívar), it was one of the first Spanish buildings in Cusco, on the central Plaza de las Nazarenas. There are just 11 rooms - looking either through characterful stone arches onto the property's handsome inner courtyard or over the plaza - each decorated in glorious colonial style with open fires, exposed beams, marble bathrooms and dining spaces just for two. Drinks and afternoon tea can be enjoyed in the courtyards, while locally-sourced Peruvian fusion is served in the intimate dining room or atmospheric terrace.
A therapy room offers bespoke treatments (such as an oxygen mask and foot massage), also using locally-sourced products. With historic art and antiques all around, this is a sensational boutique home from home.
