Settle into a candle-lit dinner where our contemporary takes on Peruvian recipes, like aji de gallina al batan, will make you curious to explore our menu in more depth. Sip on a refreshing cocktail like an Apasionada around one of the fireplaces in our courtyard.

Community

The Casona was built approximately between 1750 - 1800. The intricate, hand-carved wrap around balcony was rebuilt; replicating the original design. Original adobes where used to rebuild walls. A technique of mixing cactus with mud and straw was used for the adobe wall finishes. Roof tiles that could be salvaged where reused. Restoration of the casona was completed in June of 2016, under the supervision of the Ministerio de Cultura.

About Cusco

According to Inca mythology, Cusco was the center of the universe, where all life began. The word "Cusco" means "belly button" in Quechua. The city was first inhabited by the Incan empire beginning in the 13th century, until it was conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century. It is a UNESCO heritage city rich in history, good eats, museums, and picturesque sites.

About San Blas

San Blas is Cusco's oldest, continuously lived-in, neighborhood. Steep and narrow cobble stone streets are lined with the remains of Incan architecture and colonial casonas, where artisans, boutiques, and coffee shops now reside.
