Province of Chucuito
The Dominicans founded this town in 1534, but they were later expelled by the Jesuit missionaries that settled in Juli during the Vice-Royal period. The priests turned the city into a strategic center for the preparation of the missionaries who would go to Paraguay and Bolivia. Known as the “Little Rome of America” for its temples, the most notable attractions are the churches of San Juan de Letran, San Pedro Martir, and Santa Cruz de Jerusalén, and the Inquisition House or Zavala House. Inside the churches, you can see stone sculptures, woodcarvings, paintings, and oil paintings by eminent artists like the Jesuit Bernardo Bitti.
In Pomata, the must see attractions are the mixed style Church of Santiago Apostol and the incredible panoramic view of the lake and the Copacabana Peninsula.
