Reputed as ‘Capital folklórica del Perú’, or the folkloric capital of Peru, owing to the wealth of its artistic and cultural expressions, Puno is the capital city of Puno Province in Peru.
Located at the edge of Lake Titicaca, it has a population of about 100,168 people. According to Inca tradition, Manco Capac, the first Inca, rose from Lake Titicaca; hence, Puno was considerably significant in Inca Empire. 
Typical of high plateaus, Puno’s climate is cold and semi-dry. The city has a minimal temperature range from cool to cold. Rainfall occurs during the months of November through March.
Attracted by Puno’s mineral richness, the Spaniards established the city of San Carlos de Puno in 1668. Over the years, Puno has grown into an important agricultural and livestock region.

Overall Guide : Known for its cultural and traditional exuberance, Puno has some of richest folklore ceremonies to be witnessed. The Festival de la Virgen de la Candelaria features continuous celebrations involving dance and music. The Carnaval also entails much drinking and dancing. The... more Fiesta de San Juan de Dios in the month of March is celebrated around the Church of San Juan in Puno. May witnesses the Feria de las Alasita; miniature models houses, cars, etc. are made and blessed by challadores during this festival. The nine-day festival in September, Fiesta de Nuesta Señora de las Mercedes, is equally exciting. Apart from it festivals, the Balcón del Conde de Lemos, the Museo Municipal Carlos Dreyer, Sillustani Chullpas, and the Yavari, an old steam ship, are places of interest. A walk up to the Manco Capac monument is exciting and adventurous. When in Puno make sure to visit the Uros Islands and the Taquile Island.
