The Mansion Alcazar lies a couple of blocks from the Plaza San Francisco, home to one of the best artisan markets in Cuenca. The mansion was built in the late 19th century during the Ecuadorian Republican Era. It maintains a historic decor, with multiple sitting areas in the interior courtyard and upper mezzanine.
Tucked into a residential neighborhood near downtown Cuenca, Casa de las Rosas was built in 1952 as the home of the Tapia Peña family. Today, the youngest daughter offers comfortable accommodations in a home-like setting.
