Spectacularly located former monastery which retains its colonial character with simple décor and wooden furnishings. Views of the Hill of Seven Colours are a highlight.

El Manantial del Silencio, a former monastery is a 10-minute walk from the village centre with a spectacular backdrop of the sweeping multicoloured rock ridges of the Quebrada de Humahuaca (Hill of Seven Colours). The hotel retains the original character of the whitewashed, estancia-style building, and the simple décor and wooden furnishings complement the property's high ceilings and cool terracotta-tiled floors, all set among lawns, terraces and gardens.

The 18 modest rooms have a rustic charm and views of either the gardens or the spectacular Hill of Seven Colours. Local artefacts add a distinctive Latin American character to the common areas, which include a TV room and a cosy lounge with a fireplace. There's also a small swimming pool and a restaurant whose menu features local specialities such as llama.

Our Expert's Opinion

El Manatial del Silencio was an unexpected surprise at the end of our Road to the Clouds excursion. The hotel was simply delightful and a lovely peaceful retreat to unwind in. I only stayed for one night but wished it could have been a bit longer.
