Another beautiful hotel located in an historic building opposite the monastery. Lovely courtyard, friendly staff, good breakfast. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Great location close to main square and restaurants.

Loyal was scratching at our huts all night, we were so tempted to let him in. The wake up call was 5am for the next morning where we would ascend from here to ...
... a 20 minute dvd on the expedition to find the mummies and then was guided around various artefacts, culminating in the presentation of a small, mummified girl in a refrigerated box; so well preserved. She had been sacrificed as an offering to the Gods on Mount Apato and owes her preservation to a snow fall which froze her until she was discovered in 1995. Sabancay erupted and the expedition found traces of the grave covered by ash ...
