The folkloric center of Peru, Puno offers monthly dazzling traditional festivals with people dressed in vibrant costumes, filing the streets dancing and singing. Mestizo art, here a fusion of native and Spanish styles, can be found in the weavings, pottery, buildings and colonial balconies. It is also an important agricultural and livestock region providing llamas and alpacas, which graze on its plains, to South America. Perhaps Puno's biggest advantage is its location. Lake Titicaca, the world's highest navigable lake, is a mere 10 blocks from the main square and is scattered with 41 small islands each with its own eccentricities.
