“The Uros Floating Islands and Taquile Island visit is one of our most requested excursions. Built on totora reed, the Uros islands home the Uros-Titino people, expert raftsmen and textile weavers from whom guests learn the ancestral techniques used to keep these islands afloat. In Taquile, guests grow familiar with the Quechua imaginary in the textile tradition recently included in UNESCO’s Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.”
“Perhaps the region’s largest and most impressive pre-Hispanic funeral ground, the archaeological complex of Sillustani is an unmissable exploration into the Peruvian past. Chullpas, or ancient funerary tower structures, once built exclusively to home the remains of nobles are found here. With a range of architectural forms resulting from changes in power shifts of peoples like the Pucara and Incas, Sillustani is as much beautiful as it is interesting.”
“The epicenter of the region’s evangelizing mission of indigenous peoples during the Spanish conquest, Puno’s Juli and Pomata churches are testament to past Catholic fervor. Known as the ‘Little Rome of America,’ Juli and Pomata both offer impressive architecture. On your way back to the lodge, visit the Aramu Muru, an ancient portal to the past and previous holy site.”
