Catedral de Chucuito, Puno

3.3
#3 of 9 in Historic Sites in Puno Region
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.

  • There is nothing to do. Do not go. They lose the ttiempo. There are a few ancient monuments but there is no one who explain that they are and are not so cute to make the trip to the village.
