The “Casa Cordero” presently known as Mansión Alcázar is one of the most precious properties in Cuenca due to its architecture and history.
Construction was completed at the end of the 19th century and its first resident was Enrique Cordero, the first son of the honorable gentleman who was President of the country, Sir Luis Cordero.
It was eventually acquired by Mr. Guillermo Vázquez and later his daughter Miss Rocío Vázquez gave it life by transforming it to a beautiful boutique hotel. Mansión Alcázar remained in renovation and restoration from 1996 until 1999 and opened its doors to the public in 2001.
