This wasn't the most amazing cathedral in Peru. (That would be in Cusco.) It wasn't bad, either. A good place for quiet candie lighting, but Cusco set such a high bar. The exterior was much more impressive. Good stonework, good background for pics.

It is a city landmark, but nothing really special with it. If you are not staying close, don't bother visiting it.

While walking around Puno, we came across the Cathedral in the main square, bought some candles, lit them inside and stayed for a bit of the mass that just happened to be going on. It's not as elaborate as some other Cathedrals in the world,...More

Like most cities in South America (with its significant Catholic population), Puno has a grand Cathedral (Catedral). It adjacent to Plaza de Armas, which is surrounded by many other interesting buildings (so worth visiting to see so much), and is easy to find. I've added...More

We had some free time after lunch and we walked around the main plaza. The cathedral dominates the upper part of the plaza and on the right there is the city hall. There were some people doing interviews, and we took pictures. This cathedral has...More

Our last day in Puno, we visited this cathedral. Later in the day we sat on the steps and watched a magnificent parade of bands, dancers, etc. They were selling something similar to Silly String and everyone—including adults were spraying it on the audience. Yes,...More

I wouldn't recommend doing a guided city tour, you can safe that money and walk around on your own. The city of Puno is nothing special (check photo attached), and neither is its catedral...if you've been to Lima, Arequipa or Cusco you've seen prettier ancient...More

Not really that much to say about Puno’s cathedral other than that’s it’s just another cathedral (if you’re in Peru for more than a few weeks and have visited a few towns and cities, no doubt you have seen a dozen more impressive than this).
