Puno Travel Guide: 184 reviews and 496 photos

Puno (150,000) is the largest city on Lake Titicaca. Present-day Puno was established in 1668 by the Spanish viceroy, but the Aymara were here many centuries earlier. Puno began in the small area between the lake and the mountains, but expansion has gone up the slopes. The city is the “border” between Quechua speakers and those who speak Aymara, and most residents are trilingual.

Puno is known as “the folklore capital of Peru” for its music, dance and folklore traditions.
