Ensconced in a beautiful 17th-century home, La Quinta Luna´s enviable location in Cholula, the American continent´s oldest city, allows you to discover a different world. Visit the colorful local market, myriad historical, religious and artistic sites, the second-highest volcano in Mexico and one of the largest pyramids in the world. An added delight: the hotel´s excellent cuisine.
La Quinta Luna is a beautiful 17th-century mansion that originally belonged to pre-Hispanic indigenous nobility, which has been rescued by the Cardenas Gonzalez de Cossio family in an effort to preserve history and share it with their guests in its new incarnation as a hotel. Deemed a historic monument by the National Institute of History and Anthropology, La Quinta Luna proudly shows its original structure in Cholula, the oldest living city on the American continent. A grand arcade of illuminated arches unfolds before you and welcomes you within.
A focal point of the estate, and testimony to the family´s commitment to their heritage, is the lofty library built with 400-year-old wooden beams rescued during the restoration. It houses a rare collection of 3,000 books covering subjects from design to economics and Mexican artists to historical books of colonial and pre-Hispanic Mexico. Against a backdrop of thick adobe walls and high beamed ceilings, guest rooms and public spaces contrast the traditional with modern furnishings and artwork, lending color, form and serenity.
The hotel´s restaurant is set where the original chapel was situated and, as well as presenting exceptional art pieces in this space, there is a carving of colonial origin and a finely preserved wooden ceiling in which a beam is dated 1736. The eclectic experience is furthered by an exquisite menu that offers a mix of local specialties prepared with traditional ingredients, innovative variations of Mexican favorites, as well as international specialties that continue to contrast the traditional with the contemporary. As well as its restaurant, guests may choose to dine on the patio or within the ambiance of their own guest room.
This beautiful home exudes culture and spirit and provides the perfect hideaway for complete relaxation after a day spent exploring mystical Cholula or the vibrant city of Puebla. From the haven that is La Quinta Luna, you are minutes away from many sites of historical, religious or artistic interest. In addition to the magnificent architecture, one can observe the second-highest volcano in Mexico, walk a few blocks to one of the largest pyramids in the world or take a short drive to downtown Puebla´s exciting zocalo, lined with Talavera ceramic shops and other interesting Mexican handcrafts.
