Welcome to Chucuito
Quiet Chucuito’s principal attraction is the outlandish Templo de la Fertilidad. Its dusty grounds are scattered with large stone phalluses, some up to 1.2m in length. Local guides tell various entertaining stories about the carvings, including tales of maidens sitting atop the stony joysticks to increase their fertility. Further uphill from the main road is the main plaza, which has two attractive colonial churches, Santo Domingo and Nuestra Señora de la Asunción. You’ll have to track down the elusive caretakers to get a glimpse inside.
