Catedral de Chucuito, Puno

3.8
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in Puno
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.

  • A small town with the Tawantisuyu Temple of Fertility and two churches. On Sundays they serve the best dishes in the region.

  • Interesting Temple of Fertility, Cathedral and Plaza. The temple of fertility is a jewel, unfortunately it lacks care. The cathedral is also impressive. The square is very well maintained and worth a walk.
