Leaving Puno, we take the paved road toward the frontier to Bolivia, along 150 km to the south-est, following de coast of the lake, passing by Chimu, group of rock hills, and Ojerani and its charming houses made in native materials.

At 18 km, we stop in Chucuito, that means “the golden hill” in aymara language, where is possible to see the remains of the Inka Uyo, the temple to the fertility, that is also an astronomic observatory. During the spanish colonial time, Chucuito was founded as the Royal Coffers place, and buillldings of that epoque are still there, such as the great churches founded by Dominicans.

Continuing by the way, we pass by Acora, famous town which once a week there is a very typical market in, and there are as well some remains of chullpas near to.

Then, going by the route, at 70 km from Puno, near Ilave, we find a very special rock place, called “Ajayumarka” (city of spirits), where is the Aramumuru’s Gate, misterious relief on a big flat rock which they tell a lot of incredible stories about

Continuing, we arrive to Juli, “Rome of Indias”, charming point in the border of the lake, where Dominicans and Jesuists founded the construction of hutch churches, and made the site prosper and rich in their tentative to doctrinate the new populations during the XVII and XVIII centuries.

Then, over the 100 km from Puno, threre is Pomata, one of the nicest points of the route, where is the “Temple in rose” or the Saint James Temple, great workmanship from XVII century, full of indian-baroque style decoration.
