Built in the 17th Century this architectural gem is close to the main attractions of the city of La Paz. Find original colonial features such as Gambote brick floors, adobe walls, “cañahueca“ arches and ceilings, tiered fountains, hand-carved stone doors and windows carved in walnut wood. Wander through stone patios, terraces, towers, stables and the belfry and dine in the former church. Light filled rooms have polished wooden floors and comfortable beds with colourful bedspreads. We prefer to use the quieter rooms at the top of the hotel. An oasis in bustling La Paz. Try Gustu restaurant – one of Latin America’s 50 best restaurants.
A perfect spot to relax in one of the highest cities in the world.
This really was the holiday of a lifetime and thanks to expedition leader Hannah and her fantastic team was it was a magical experience. The scenery and wildlife were breathtaking and the history of polar exportation, and my hero Sir Ernest Shackleton in particular was vividly, brought to life. To be able to follow his journey and pay my respects to him at his graveside in South Georgia was very emotional and something I will never forget.
