Catacos Travel guide
Catacos : Michelin's recommendations
A major folklore centre in the region, Catacos is particularly lively on Saturdays and Sundays during its craft market where goldsmiths, potters, huacos vendors and straw hat makers congregate. Don't miss the chance to wander around the pretty lanes, whose dilapidated mud houses perch precariously on wooden stilts. After a shopping spree, fortify yourself with a sip of chicha de jora, alcohol distilled from fermented corn.
