FULL DAY TAQUILE

TAQUILE

Taquile is located 21 miles from the city of Puno in the heart of the Titicaca Lake. Taquile has a population of approximately 2000 inhabitants and was declared Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2005 by “UNESCO” for its textile arts.

In Taquile we are still practicing the original Andean laws; ‘ama sua’ (do not be a thief), ‘ama kella’ (do not be lazy), ‘ama llulla’ (do not be a liar). We maintain the living culture; heritage of our ancestors.
