In the heart of the Sacred Valley is this 300-year-old former convent (monastery) whose rooms, with tile floors, wood ceilings, and hand-carved headboards, have balconies that overlook the gardens or the terraced hillsides. The cobblestone walkways are the perfect complement to the well-preserved colonial-era church on the grounds. A few rooms have access for people with disabilities, a rarity in this part of the country, but they must be reserved in advance. The restaurant has excellent regional fare and a popular Sunday lunch buffet.
