A jewel of a cathedral and do not pass it by when in Puno, take time to see the chapels and colonial architecture, and stone carvings. .

The cathedral was not overwhelming, but still very nice! It is also located directly on the Plaza de Armas, which you are likely to see while visiting Puno, so a stop in is recommended when passing by. The surrounding plaza and restaurants are also great...More

The Cathedral is a quiet, lovely, church in the heart of Puno. The statues and paintings were lovely. Take a half an hour to visit and reflect in this lovely atmosphere.

Very beautiful cathedral in the center of the Plaza de Armas. Worth seeing if you are doing something other than the lake in Puno.

As churches go in Peru, this one is nothing special. If you are in the area, then take a look but do not go out of your way.

The cathedral is very nice both from outside and inside. I recommend you to go by night as the cathedral is illuminated and you can usually go inside without paying the entrance fee !

On Saturday night it had a small party with loud music and lots of young people. I liked the restaurant behind the cathedral.
