5° Puno Folkloric Capital of the Americas:
Puno in Peru is an accumulation of folklore and colorful costumes in each of its streets. Although it is true that you can feel the almost 4,000 meters of altitude when you walk, Puno welcomes you with special friendliness and affection.
To speak of Puno in Peru is to speak of Titicaca, it is the sacred lake of the Incas, and its magnificent islands, where the magic in the atmosphere gives the eyes of visitors a special glow.
Today, the city of Puno is located in the Bay of Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca and approximately (3,827 masl…) considered the “Peruvian Folk Capital” or “Cradle of the Inca Empire” and home to the Festival of the Virgin of Candelaria and rests on the shores of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world.
The lake is also home to several islands, whose inhabitants have preserved ancestral customs and traditions. An example of this are the Uros, who live on “floating islands”
Artificially made from reeds and who sail through the area in their traditional reed boats. Taquile, Suasi and Amantaní are known for the kindness of their inhabitants and their ancient weaving techniques, their pre-Columbian buildings and wonderful landscapes.
Kuélap, the walled city in the clouds built by the Chachapoyas, the main pre-Inca civilization of the Peruvian mountain jungle. The Chachapoyas culture left an important number of large stone monuments, such as the Llacta de Kuélap, the Gran Pajatén, funerary buildings, sarcophagi and mausoleums like those at Laguna de los Condors and other sites that are difficult to access.
This culture was a set of developing autonomous communities. The Chachapoyas lived southeast of the Bracamoros, on the right bank of the Marañón River.
Their development centered on the Utcubamba river valley. They also possessed fortifications and structures of a military nature, but despite this, they were conquered by the Incas in 1470.
An almost forgotten culture developed there, made up of various ethnic groups, located at an altitude of around 3,000 metres, which lasted until 1470 when they were subjugated by the Incas.
They had very skilled artists, highlighting their textiles, goldsmithery, constructions and other aspects of craftsmanship.
