A few hours in Puno

I had some time to kill between the end of my tour of Lake Titicaca and when my overnight bus left for Cusco, so I endeavored to check out some of Puno’s sights.

Turns out, there’s not much to see in Puno, but there is a cute restaurant, La Casa del Corregidor, with a courtyard, Spanish tiled roof and window frames that are painted that wonderful shade of blue, at which to pass the time and write some postcards.

I did make stops in a couple of churches: the main cathedral, which had wonderful chanting playing while I was there:P4120490.JPGthe facade of the main Cathedral

and Iglesia San Antonia: note the prominent imagery of the sun and moon: P4120476.JPGP4120477.JPG
