“Just like thousands of churches in Peru”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Nothing impressive. It's situated in the main square of Puno called Plaza da Armas. Stone walled and the interiors are also not impressive. The Plaza is the place to be in front of the Church where you can spend quality time.

This was a beautiful and simple cathedral. It was nice to just walk around leisurely for a little bit.

“Of special architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

My brother, an architect, was explaining to me how special this cathedral is: it represents the andean baroque, of the very few made of stone, and displays circular gargoyles. Take as many photos as you can!

“magnificent cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

we just took a small time to visit this cathedral between masses of one week 2014. Very very nice architecture but the people inside really did not want visitors to be in their way. I would have liked to spend more time looking at the interior of this cathedral.

“hermoso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

is in the main square, it is a large building but unlike some cathedrals that are over showie,it is quite plane inside somewhere that is used often by the local people.
big catedrals in south america, there are nothing to see in here. But it's free and the location is on the main park 'Plaza de Armas'. Taking 5~10 mins of seeing is not so bad.
