Catedral de Chucuito, Puno
(3.9/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Step into a simpler time at the small town of Catedral de Chucuito. Walk the streets to see the ruins and walls dating back to the 16th century, and drop by Latin America's only fertility temple. Though some question the authenticity of the temple, the structure stands in stunning contrast to the town's small colonial church, which dates back to before Peruvian independence. If you like the outdoors, head to the surrounding hills for easy, fun trekking. Make Catedral de Chucuito a part of your Puno vacation plans using our Puno holiday planner.

  • Chucuito is a small village where the only thing you can see is the Temple of fertility, which takes no more than 15 minutes. I would not recommend it.

  • I visit chucuito every weekend, it is a place full of energy... not attend many tourists but you can see beautiful colonial temples as well as a solar clock. I recommend to stay to try his delicious dishes at lunchtime.

  • Chuquito is a place very close to the city of Puno, where the tour can be personally without Tours, takes a few trucks ranging to Chucuito by S /. 1.50 and leave you in the plaza de armas, there is a tourist office that gives free a brochure of the places to visit. The most interesting are the ruins of the Temple of fertility and the fish farm, the first cobra 2 Suns income and the second 1.50
