Libertador Palacio del Inka

Palacio del Inka, Cusco, Peru


The history of Libertador’s Palacio del Inka reads like a microcosm of the history of Peru itself. Located directly across from the Qorikancha, the main temple of the Inca empire in Cuzco, it once served as an antechamber for worship of the sun god Inti. Later, after the Spanish conquered the city in 1533, Francisco Pizarro’s brother Gonzalo gave the palace as a gift to the Marquis Juan de Salas y Valdes, as a reward for faithful military service. From there the so-called “Casona Cuatro Bustos”—after the four sculptured busts above the main door—has been passed down from generation to generation, eventually becoming a luxury hotel in 1976.

Today, when you stay at this five-star lodging, you’ll be surrounded by this storied past, from the Inca walls that make up its foundations to the stone arcades built in honor of the region’s dynastic families. Best of all, you’ll experience this architectural magnificence with all the modern conveniences befitting Cuzco’s royal status—all just steps from the city’s Plaza de Armas.
