The history of La Casona Yucay
This historic casona in Peru’s Sacred Valley was built in 1810 and once offered refuge to Simon Bolivar, the most important leader of South America’s independence movement. The Orihuela family supported Bolivar, allowed him to stay in their home and to make a speech from one of the balconies of the house!
La Casona Yucay – tranquil Sacred Valley setting
Fast forward to the twenty-first century, and the house has been converted into a beautiful historic hotel, set in tranquil gardens and green space. The location is idyllic, surrounded by magnificent mountains – in every direction there are stunning views to enjoy. The hotel is located in Yucay, a picturesque Sacred Valley village, making it an ideal location for exploring the many attractions in the valley such as Ollantaytambo, Pisac, Maras, Moray and Chinchero, as well as a launch pad for your excursion to Machu Picchu.
