Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

  • Visit the Inca site first (also referred to as a Temple of Fertility). It may look more like a model mushroom farm, but they will hand you a decent map of the town and its attractions. Entry 5 Soles.
  • Walk some 2-300 metres uphill from the main square and cross under the power lines. Here you have a nice view of the town, the lake and the surroundings. Look further up; there is a big white cross on the cliff somewhat to the left. That's where the real views are!
