TIERRA VIVA PUNO HOTEL
Rooms from $59
In Lampa, the pink city located 30 minutes from Juliaca, preserved a beautiful church made of stone, two identical replica of the Pieta by Michelangelo and a museum of the painter Humareda. From Ayaviri, which includes the Cathedral, cheeses and Cancacho, the characteristic dish of lamb, there is an access of rocks to the forest Tinajani. In this vast natural area the wind has created fanciful shapes with cannons and sandstone, making the site a magical and unique place in the department. Every August there is a festival of native dances that brings together thousands of dancers from across the Ande.
At the top of Tinajani is Tarukani, the forest of Puya Raimondi, the largest of Peru. These plants have the biggest inflorescence in the world, made up of thousands of tiny flowers are fertilized in turn by the smallest bird there, the hummingbird.
And finall the city of Puno. The capital of the department of the same name retains a rich history that is reflected in their churches, plazas and colonial houses. But perhaps its their dances, costumes, music and folk art what stands out the most. It is this culture that can be seen in February during the Virgen de la Candelaria festivities, and many other held in neighborhoods and nearby communities. Without a doubt, Puno is considered the folklore capital of Peru and America.
