HISTORY

 

On December 1st, 1999, UNESCO classified the Historic Centre of Cuenca as “Cultural World Heritage.” The building where Hotel La Casona functions is considered part of this heritage due to its distinct French architectural style, its Republican origin, and its excellent preservation.

 

It was constructed by Brother Luis Sarmiento at the end of the 19th Century, functioning originally as a vacation home. The beauty of the area and the big size of the property made it a favorite location for spiritual retreats. Eventually, with the increasing urbanization of the area, the property was included in the city.
