Catedral de Puno, Puno

4.0
A prominent example of colonial Baroque architecture, Catedral de Puno serves as the seat of the region's Catholic diocese. As you approach the cathedral (c. 1757), admire its imposing exterior, boasting extensive brickwork, a grand entryway, and two relatively squat bell towers. Enter the building to see its altar, featuring numerous intricate religious figures dotting a sizable frame. Note the flag of the Vatican on display to the side--a commemoration of a visit by Pope Paul VI in 1964. Make Catedral de Puno a part of your Puno vacation plans using our Puno trip planner.
