Private Tour

DAY 01: TOUR ROUTE OF CHURCHES + HAYUMARCA: Chucuito is located 18 km away south of Puno, 20 minutes drive, on the road connecting to Bolivia, this town is known as the city of the royal boxes because it was paid the taxes here in colonial times, those taxes came from the silver mines of Laykakota, Puno – Peru, in that time this mine was comparable only with the mine of Potosi – Bolivia. Visit the temple of fertility called “Inca uyu” formerly called Temple of the Sun (Inca). In the main square lies a sundial worked in alabaster stone dating from 1610, rebuilt in 1825. Chucuito has 02 squares, in one of them is located the church of Santo Domingo and in the other one the church Our Lady of Assumption. In this town existed a jail, which you could still see its construction in all its originality. In addition Chucuito has a fish farm (an experimental center of the National University of Altiplano). Hayumarca or Aramu Muro: Also known as Wilca Uta, located 75 km away from Puno, in the place called Altarani, 01:20 hour drive, on the route connecting to Bolivia. Aramu Muro is a rock where a door is carved in low relief, the legend says that Aramu a god pre Inca would have disappeared in this door carved in stone (jayu marka = city of spirits) taking with him a solar disk of the Lemurias, for not to be stolen by the conquerors. This place is very mysterious, local people say there is spirits hovering around the door and the zone is energetic, so perhaps it is more visited. Juli: Colonial town, located 79 km away from Puno, 01:30 hour drive, on route connecting to Bolivia. Juli is known as the little Rome of America, because here came the first missionaries (Dominicans) in 1539, but Juli was part of the kingdom of Lupacas, where was established doctrines to evangelize to the people, so was built churches by Dominicans and Jesuits like those of Rome in Italy. Juli was founded by the Jesuits in 1565 and it had a population of 14,000 people, currently it has 4 churches with similar names that in Rome (Italy) such as Saint Peter, Saint Cross, Our Lady of the Assumption and Saint John of Lateran, the history says that each church had its own population, in other words it was forbidden to attend other neighboring churches. The Dominicans left the town of Juli in 1574, and then the Spanish brought a splinter of the cross of Jesus and also a printing press (1583) considered the second in America (after Mexico), to print books in 3 languages Quechua, Aimara and Castilian. The windows of the churches of Juli are made of stone alabaster, as this type of stone catches the light. Pomata: Colonial town located 105 km away from Puno, 02:00 hours drive, founded by the Spanish in 1534, now known as the balcony philosophical of the high plateau, from where one has a spectacular view of Lake Titicaca. In 1540 was built the chapel of Santa Barbara at the foot of Calvary Hill, and in 1576 the colonial church of Saint James Apostle, the style is Baroque built in brownstones of the area, in the church of Saint James Apostle lies underground catacombs where are the remains of bishops of this area. The first settlers call Puma Uta to this city, and would later be called Pomata by the Spanish. Then a return trip to Puno.
