Built in the 1940s as lodging for monks, the Libertador Trujillo features rooms with Moorish-style wooden balconies. They were patterned after those used during Spanish rule to prevent women from being seen from the street. Don’t miss a breakfast of mini tamales and fresh fruit juice, best enjoyed in the tranquil courtyard.
From $100. Jirón Independencia 485, Plaza de Armas, Trujillo, 51/(0) 44-23-2741. This appeared in the March/April 2013 issue.
