Originally built in 1595, Hotel Monasterio sits on the site of Inca Amaru Qhala's palace. Three year's later, the Spanish took it over and founded the Seminary of San Antonio Abad.
An earthquake seriously damaged the building in 1650, and upon restoration the beautiful Chapel was added.
In 1965, the building was remodelled as a hotel.
Hotel Monasterio is now a national historic landmark, protected by Peru's National Institute of Culture.
The Hotel's design features historic touches to reflect its rich heritage.
The stones around the entrance doors still bear the Spanish Arms Escutcheon and the image of Bishop Monsignor Juan Serricolea y Olea.
The Chapel is decorated in Baroque style, with gold-plated pictures frames. Magnificent paintings depict scenes from the life of its patron saint.
At the heart of the hotel is the beautiful cloistered courtyard, featuring a tranquil fountain and 300-year-old cedar tree.
The hotel is situated in the centre of Cusco just one hundred metres away from Plaza De Armas square which is the very centre of the town and where most historical monuments are situated.
