TITICACA A SPECTACULAR PARADISE

Lake Titicaca is located in Puno. The tradition that shows us the city of Puno is based on its spectacular landscapes that transmit a kind of dazzle and well-being. Puno gives us magnificent and significant experiences, full of intense emotions, often leaving us stunned by the wonders we observe in this town.

Location

The city is within the department of Puno and is located in southern Peru, bordering with Madre de Dios, Bolivia, Tacna, Moquegua, Arequipa and Cusco.

History

In Puno there are uros or urus, which are an ethnic group distributed in the Collao plateau in territories of Peru, Bolivia and neighboring areas in Chile. In the past they occupied larger territories that included even the inter-Andean valleys of the Pacific basin near the Collao as enclaves. In Peru they form 4 groups: The Floating Islands of the Urus Puno (80 islands) inhabit the Bay of Puno, Floating Islands Kapi (more than 10 islands) located in the district of Huatta-Puno, urus Titino and urus Chulluni on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

Festivities

Puno is known for being the folkloric capital of Peru. The historical, religious and Andean festivities that are celebrated are loaded with a great cultural baggage, being its maximum expression the Festivity of the Virgin of the Candelaria, the same one that has as main day the 2 of February and finishes the 18 of that same month. In this celebration declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, religious processions are held in honor of the Mamacha Candelaria, in addition to regional dances where musicians and dancers present various costumes and dances of the place.

Here you will find floating islands, which are artificially made from dry Totora. Among these we find Los Uros, where the descendants of the ancient uru chipaya live.
