Fodor's Review

A statue honoring Manco Cápac, the first Inca and founder of the Inca Empire, sits on this hill overlooking Puno. Legend has it that there are caves and subterranean paths in the monument, which connect Puno with the Koricancha Temple in Cusco. It's technically a 10-minute walk from town, four blocks southwest of Plaza de Armas, but it's all uphill and a bit off the beaten path. A few robberies have been reported, so stick with a group or take a taxi.
