Fodor's Expert Review Catedral

Puno Historic District/Site

Etchings of flowers, fruits, and mermaids playing an Andean guitar called the charango grace the entrance of the Spanish baroque-style church. Sculpted by Peruvian architect Simon de Asto, the 17th-century stone cathedral has one of the more eclectically carved facades of any church in the area. Plain on the inside, its main decorations are a silver-plated altar and paintings from the Cusco School.
