Arrival at the port and we start to walk up (Approximately 40 minutes) towards to the village and its plaza. In 2005, Taquile Island and its textile art were declared an Intangible Heritage of Humanity
The people of Taquile were relatively isolated from the mainland until the 1950s, and the notion of community is still very strong among them. This is reflected in the organization of community life and in collective decision-making. The weaving tradition on the island goes back to the ancient Inca, Pukara and Colla civilizations, thus keeping alive aspects of pre-Hispanic Andean cultures.
We will walk around its Plaza and Church, its traditional streets and enjoy a cultural activity where you will learn more about the high quality of the textiles.
Then we’ll continue to one of the village restaurants for a traditional lunch. After lunch we’ll walk back to our boat and start the return to Puno.
