Lying at the heart of Arequipa’s centre, Cirqa is a parador of arches, vaulted ceilings, exposed walls & open courtyards.

With the surrounding volcanoes providing an impressive backdrop, the interiors of Cirqa are left simple, fresh & bright, drawing attention to the property’s heritage.

What we love about Cirqa

  • There are three differing categories to choose from. Our favourite Boveda has high vaulted ceilings, open arches & features a free-standing bath
  • A plunge pool sits at the centre of the patio for warmer days
  • Check out the spa therapy room for relaxing weary muscles after long days of exploring
  • Surrounded by traditional Peruvian Picanterías (lunchtime restaurants) head chef Maria draws inspiration from native ingredients, flavours & spices. Produce is often sourced from an organic roof garden
