Monasterio Hotel Cusco

Situated just a few blocks of the main plaza, its infrastructure was built in the 16th century as a monastery on Inca foundations. Much of its original architecture remains are intact, paying homage to its original seminarian occupants. In keeping with its intended purpose, its rooms and suites feature a mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings, with a great gallery of religious art gracing the walls.
