Set on the shores of glistening Lake Titicaca, this large city is dubbed the ‘folklore capital' of Peru, well known for its traditional music and dance, and is also an important region for agricultural and livestock farming, particularly llamas and alpacas. Highlights of this city include visits to the historical Church of San Pedro, the Sistine Chapel of the Americas, and a stroll along the boardwalk at the shoreline of Lake Titicaca. If you have the energy, it is well worth taking a climb up the 700 steps that lead to the Kuntur Wasi viewpoint, which is presided over by a massive metal condor sculpture and offers breathtaking vistas across the city and Lake Titicaca beyond.
