Peru Cusco

The Libertador Hotel

The Libertador Palacio del Inka Hotel Cusco is located in the historical centre of Cusco, across from the impressive Koricancha (Temple of the Sun) and surrounded by magnificent Inca and colonial buildings. It is just minutes away from the city's major attractions: the main plaza, the Cathedral and the artisans' neighbourhood known as San Blas.

It was built on the foundations of the Aclla Huasi, where the chosen virgins of the Inca lived. Wonderfully, some of its original walls still remain. The house was restored in 1976, to become the 240 room, 5* Libertador Hotel.

I loved staying in this wonderful hotel which still has original Inka walls.
