Parador

Originally founded in 1540, year in which Arequipa was built, the building’s latest big constructional changes date from 1883. The appreciation for its long standing history combined with current contemporary nuances make for a small private hotel applauded for its astounding architectural interior, partly made of volcanic sillar rock, and exemplary personalized high-quality service.

inspiration

Located in the historic centre of Arequipa, Cirqa shares an age-old bond with the San Agustín Church. Like the Church’s traditional parador, where monks would receive travellers with one-of-a-kind service and hearty cuisine, Cirqa was fervently inspired by the unbounded hospitality and ecclesiastical history that still define Arequipa to its core. Honouring this original concept, Cirqa is a place of both rest and fine cuisine. In the parador, travellers can embark on a myriad of excursions or choose to sample homegrown dishes in the several eating areas.

History

In 1540, the year in which Arequipa was built, the land was divided between its founders and the Spanish nobility of the time. The land on which Cirqa now sits, was granted to Alonso De Luque, a renowned scribe. He later bequeathed it to the Augustinian Order requesting to build a church with cloisters, patios, orchards and gardens as well as a sepulchre for him and his wife under the future altar of Saint Nicholas of Tolentino.

" A place in time but written with a Q as in Arequipa"

Arequipa

Under the careful watch of three snow-capped volcanoes, sunny Arequipa is the heart of Peru’s southern circuit. This colonial gem is home to beautiful architecture and a wonderful year-round climate. On top of its colourful monasteries and grand cathedral, its cobblestone streets and limitless gastronomic heritage make for a perfectly picturesque destination. Arequipa has a year-round sunny climate with barely any rainfall and day temperatures ranging from 10°c to 25°c that will drop after sunset. From January to March, Arequipa has a mild rainy season, but April until December are as good as rainless. At 2328 m above sea level, Arequipa reveals spectacular scenery and is the perfect gateway to acclimatise to the altitude before continuing on to the higher destinations.
