"visit Taquile Island. Taquile..." Peru Favorite Tip by ceciliagh

Peru General: 206 reviews and 170 photos


Favorite thing: visit Taquile Island. Taquile is located 35 Kms. from Puno. Taquile was used as political prison in the period of 1917 - 1931. 'Taquileños' are extraordinary weavers, activity that is made by men and women, children and old men. Here you can buy caps, gloves, scarfs, but I think the prices are a little high. There are archaeological remains belong to Tiahuanaco and Inca culture. The highest point in the island (4000 m) has a fabulous view of the port and Titicaca Lake.
