Shopping

Local specialties include handmade miniatures of totora-reed boats and unusual varieties of Andean potatoes. Massive bags of pasankalla, which is puffed choclo (corn) with caramel, the South American version of popcorn, abound. Dozens of stores sell llama- and alpaca-wool hats and sweaters. Vehicle adornments used in the cha’lla and religious paraphernalia are sold at stalls in front of the cathedral.
