Explora Valle Sagrado was designed as a headquarter from where to explore a remote and great destination: Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Explora Valle Sagrado is located in one of the region’s most remote ancient corn plantations close to the Urquillos village. It is designed in line with its surroundings, generating a dialogue with the high Andean mountains around the valley, as well as the surrounding plantations that are still today being harvested by townspeople.
During the entire design and construction process, the hotel's archeological studies revealed many vestigial Inca remains.
