Puno undoubtedly is the right place to appreciate the largest folkloric show flaunting the title of being the folkloric capital of Peru.
In Puno more than 300 dances are known, for their location are divided into dances “Aymara” and Quechua dances. There are dances purely indigenous character, rural character and dances of colonial origin satirizing the Spanish conquistadors to the mestizo dances.

These representations of art are permanently shown in the Altiplano, where the villager expresses his feelings through artistic creation that interprets several passages of his life.

We have a very full calendar of festivals and we quote the main and the most spectacular of all, the most holy Virgin of Candelaria patroness of Puno, it’s held in February.
