Located in the Old Town district, Hotel Santa Lucia is one of Cuenca's most historic antique buildings. Newly renovated with all the modern conveniences, it has become an integral part of Cuenca's antique building collection, delivering the elegant atmosphere of yesteryear in Ecuador.
The house where the Santa Lucia hotel is now located was built by the first governor of Azuay province, Don Manuel Vega Davila, in 1859.

Hotel Santa Lucia has preserved this piece of Cuenca heritage, keeping this house as an example of the architectural style of the last part of the 19th Century in Ecuador.
