Catedral de Chucuito, Puno

Inspirock Rating:
3.3/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • In Chucuito, the tourist, it is impressed to see a fusion of the pre-Inca cultures and incas and the Spanish conquistadors, its churches, are predominantly Catholic, however present, Inca motifs, that were apparently placed unless they have been advised by the conquerors, also impressive is a statue in which is a couple of Indians without head , at the beginning I thought that is had broken by the passage of time, however then inform me that they were original, and were a message to the Indians than them could happen if continue worshipping their gods and following its traditions, its area there is a relos with the signs of the Zodiac, there are only two in Peru, I recommend to visit with a guide to see all the attractions.

  • We went to Chucuito, from Puno, in a local combi. In a beautiful, picturesque village, with the ingredients for a nice ride: gazebo overlooking the Lake, square, Cathedral, Church, Temple of fertility, and a not-very-long walk to a higher part of the village with a panoramic view. To stay awhile at the square, looking at its people. We went to lunch at Don Juan, opposite the Church, a beautiful place where broke us a dish for vegetarians.
