Welcome to Inca Hacienda

How do you feel about sleepingt in an Inca Palace?

About one hour from Quito by way of Panamericana Sur stands the unique colonial Hacienda of San Agustín de Callo. Built on the site of an Inca palace (600 years), one of the two most important archaeological Inca sites in Ecuador, and the point furthest north from Cuzco of Imperial-style construction, this working farm offers an unrivaled glimpse into Ecuador´s rich and colorful past.


The varied and influential inhabitants of San Agustin de Callo have contributed to the unique blend of architecture which creates the individual character of the house. In the main courtyard, it is possible to see three distinct styles, Inca (Imperial style – 15th century, construction style which the Incas used for their temples and palaces), Spanish Colonial (18th century), and Republican (19th century). San Agustin de Callo constitutes the only lived-in museum of Inca Imperial and Spanish Colonial style.

In 1921 the Hacienda was purchased by General Leonidas Plaza Gutierrez, leader of the liberal Revolution. Plaza went on to become President of Ecuador in 1901 and again in 1912, a position which was to be held by his son Galo Plaza Lasso in 1948. The Hacienda has remained in the family to this day and is currently owned by the General’s granddaughter, Mignon Plaza, whose father, the distinguished congressman and legendary amateur bullfighter, Jose María Plaza Lasso, played a pivotal role in politics throughout his life.
