This stylish and sophisticated boutique hotel, part of the Relais & Châteaux Collection, has an unbeatable location – only one block from the main square in Arequipa.


Since Cirqa is housed in a lovingly restored historic Parador, it has a stunning design reminiscent of 1540, the year of Arequipa’s founding.
