  • In the city met the Church and the local Museum, our guide told us that Pukara is the city where bulls are made of clay that lie on top of the houses of many Peruvians. According to tradition, everyone should have two small bulls on the roof for protection and luck. This parade also had a fair with various handicrafts and we do not resist a little shopping.
