history

There are several legends about centenarians that roam the land where now stands the Hotel.


One, that the Hotel was built on an Indian burial ground, and later, around 1600, Doña Catalina de los Rios and Lisperguer, known as The Quintrala, owner of the Knights Company, came to tour their land at night dragging her long dress, carrying in one hand a candle and in the other a bundle that left as offerings on the graves of the Indians that at any minute he served as slaves.


Before dying, the Quintrala decided to donate these extensive lands to the Jesuit religious order, as a way to wash away their sins. For its part, the Jesuits, jealously guarded and hid all the treasures of the cemetery all indications, and to prevent looting, decided to open the fences of the hills and let the lions down from pre ridge to guard such secrets.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.Text by Steve Smith.
