More than 60km northwest of Juliaca, the sleepy village of Pucará is famous for its celebrations of La Virgen del Carmen, on July 16, and its earth-colored pottery – including the ceramic toritos (bulls) often seen perched on the roofs of Andean houses for good luck. Local workshops are open to the public and offer ceramics classes. The pre-Inca site Kalasaya lies above town, with some of its monoliths on show in the central Museo Lítico Pucará.
