Known as the Peruvian Capital of Folklore, Lake Titicaca hosts some of the country’s most renowned traditional festivals. Among the most celebrated and popular is the Virgin of la Candelaria, declared Intangible and Cultural Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO and showcasing over 360 pre- and post-colonial dances.
