Puno Cathedral

Every city and town in Peru had at least one big church.  The larger cities had at least one big cathedral as well.  Most of the churches and cathedrals are positioned in the main square of each town.

In true Peru style, the city of Puno had an old, beautiful cathedral in the main town square.  The Cathedral Basilica of St. Charles Borromeo (also known as Puno Cathedral) is an Andean Baroque cathedral built in 1757. 

The cathedral was always locked up until mass.  So I tried my best not to interrupt the service, but capture some photos at the same time.  I loved the inside of this facility, the shadows created by the lighting and the colors.  I hope you like it as well.
