Catedral de Puno, Puno
(3.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Puno Cathedral is situated on the main square. Colonial Baroque style with the side quite impressive inside has nothing of importance. Worth a short visit
    View original
  • In addition to its beautiful façade of the Cathedral does not have attractive relevant, but as there's not much to do in the city why not visit the Seville Cathe

  • This Cathedral is a small church which is located next to the main square of Puno and around which there are many cafes and restaurants that allow a beautiful view of the same.

  • Reached here through touristic alley then I saw small Catedral. Weather was extreamly clear, I could see at a time rapidly. I felt instantly this is the cathedral where live togather with locals.
  • Come here for night pictures of the Cathedral. It is not one of the biggest Cathedrals but its one of the nicest buildings in Puno. The lighting is nice at night and the front of the Cathedral has some nice detailed work.
  • I visited at night and truly enjoyed the architecture of this place
  • This cathedral is a treat to your eyes. Around every corner you will find something else that you will enjoy. Everything is beautiful, and the tour through the building is well organized. Highlight for me was the building of Jeses eating guinea pig! A shame is that the souvenir 'shop' is not more than a little table with some things you can buy. That could have been better. Oh, and you can leave your camera home, no photos are allowed. Such a shame!
  • Puno Cathedral is a nice building; and it looks good from the main square. But Puno Cathedral also is not well kept up-to-date. It can do with a good clean-up and fix-up; specially the interior.
