About Puno

For many travellers the port of Puno is simply a crossroads en route between Cusco and Bolivia or a convenient departure point for trips to Lake Titicaca’s floating islands. This is selling Puno short as it is a town rich in living tradition with an intriguing pre-Columbian history. Dating back some 3,000 years ago, the Pukara culture left behind a number of stone pyramids and engraved standing stones whilst the ancient Colla tribe left gigantic white stone towers. Strewn all around the banks of Lake Titicaca, these chullpas, some up to 10m in height, are where the Colla buried their dead. The temple/cemetery complex of Sillustani is home to the most impressive of these with many of the graves containing ceramics, jewellery and the occasional weapon, as well as mummified remains.
