Known as “The Rose/pink City” because of their habitat mostly painted with “chocorosí” (a pinkesh material similar to clay), It is also called “The City of the Seven Wonders”, it’s 77 Km off Puno’s city. We’ll visit the Apostle Santiago’s Temple (St. James, the apostle’s Temple). Inside the temple you’ll see the image of the Virgin of Immaculate Conception brought from Spain around the year of 1792 (by the end of the XVI century). The Christ of Leather is an exceptional image of Jesus Christ. We believed there are only 2 of this kind in the world; one in Pamplona, Spain and the other one in Lampa. On a crypt next to the temple there is a chapel, inside there’s a replica of “La Piedad” from Miguel Angel Buonarroti, this is the reason the church takes a name of “La Sixtina de America” showing the representation of the last supper, a natural size sculpture of St. James the Apostle, valuable pictures and much more to discover.
We’ll return the Puno’s city about one and a half hour trip back.
Tour time lapse: About 7 hours.
