About the Tour

Visit the town of Pomata, a new tourist destination in Puno Peru. In this free walking tour you will learn about Aymara customs and traditions, a town on the shores of Lake Titicaca, which has a great historical past (since pre-Inca times, Incas and arrival of the Dominicans and Jesuits in the 16th century) and beautiful landscapes .

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.

It is an ideal place to visit, renew yourself with positive energy and only this town has this unique traditional custom. Do not wait any longer and book this guruwalk now!
