This was the house of Manuel Segundo Ballón, bishop of Arequipa at the end of the 19th century. He organized the most important expedition to Misti Volcano to set the cross on the highest point of the summit. The bishop transported, on mules, the rails that were prepared by the railroad workers. The expedition received the new century by celebrating mass on the small altar next to the cross on January 1, 1900.

The hostel has promoted the works and though of the patriot and poet Mariano Melgar, who devoted his life to achieving Peruvian independence. As a poet, Melgar became one of the most prominent romantic poets of Peru in the 19th century. It is believed that he lived in this house temporarily.

Breakfast is served daily in our cafeteria "La Flor de Café". The coffee is especially browed following the best traditions of Arequipa.
