Built by the provincial governor in 1859, this mansion is set around three internal courtyards and in the manner of the best houses of that time was beautifully restored and converted into a first rate hotel, opening in 2002. The style is traditional and opulent with polished wood floors, luxurious fabrics and period furnishings, with the courtyard layout bringing a sense of quiet spaciousness. Hostería Santa Lucia has 20 bedrooms, each well furnished and generously sized and is conveniently located for independent city sightseeing.
