“It is there and free, so why not.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

A landmark in Puno, on Plaza the Armas, but definitivly not a must. Still a huge place and quite quiet.

“Just another Catedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Located in the plaza de armas, no-one will miss it. It's where everything happens in Puno.
Can't really people watch there Sunday morning, almost everyone wakes up late or goes to church. However, the place is buzzing with activity after 10 am.

“Nicest place in Puno city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

The only building that stands out of the rest in Puno city. Great architecture.

I would recommend to do the Sillustani trip when visiting Puno, as there is not really much to see in the rest of Puno.

“Mermaids, Cathedral Puno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

The unique characteristics of the stone facade include 2 charango-playing mermaids--a marvelous curiosity! If you are in Puno June-August 2012 check out my totora reed & bamboo mermaid sculptural installation inspired by these two! You will find her erected temporarily on the right side of the cathedral.
