About the tour

We will walk the town of Pomata on a city tour appreciating the Architectural Jewel of Colonial Art "Temple Santiago Apóstol", the only model of colonial architecture in America. From the Jaquipata viewpoint we appreciate Lake Titicaca and the surrounding landscape, the typical cuisine and much more.

Every January first, "new year", the swearing in of the district's communal authorities, "Urpu T'anta" or threaded of the Lieutenant Governors, is performed. This custom symbolizes the abundance of bread products to take away. It is a parade that starts from 9:00 A.M. in the atrium of the Temple, where family members and community members decorate their lieutenant governor of their community with Pomata threaded breads, cantuta and some fruits, and then go to the Plaza de Armas de Pomata to make a parade.
