Puno is a city in southern Peru located next to Lake Titicaca, one of the largest lakes in South America and the highest navigable body of water in the world. The city is a regional commercial center and is also considered the “folk capital” of Peru, for its traditional festivals with lively music and dance shows. Iconic sites include the Puno Cathedral, a Baroque-style Andean construction, and the nineteenth-century Yavarí steamboat (currently a hostel).
