Description

We will kickstart this Online Experience with panoramic views from the Huajasapata Hill, a famous viewpoint in Puno. Appreciate the view of the first Inca Manco Capac sculpture along with the breathtaking blues of the Lake Titicaca and the city of Puno. Then we shall go down the streets to see two 600-year-old houses that remain standing till date as a testament to the strength of a civilisation. Right next to them stands the baroque style cathedral in Puno with its unique architectural details and rock engravings that are influenced by a mix of local and foreign cultures. Continue walking to the Main Square, which has a very beautiful pool in the centre and decorations that give  insights into the local culture of Puno.

We will now walk along the JR Lima, the main street of the city and go the way up to the second square where the San Juan Temple is located. Here, you will see the Virgin of Candelaria - the city's patron saint. It is out of devotion for her that the largest celebration in Peru is held here annually in February, where thousands of people take to the streets to celebrate. We will continue walking along Independence Street towards the Deustua Arch to reach the end of this tour.

Hi, I'm a certified professional tour guide in Peru and have been working for several years doing cultural, adventure, folkloric tours, and birdwatching. I was born in Puno and have lived here all my life. I love exploring the highlands because people can come across many historic sites from the pre-Inca periods. I love history and am a fan of photography and nature. I want to share the story, legends, and folklore of the Peruvian highlands with you!

From USD 20 / Screen
