Tiwanaku Ruins Tours

For anyone interested in learning about the pre-Colombian ancient cultures of South America, the Tiwanaku site is un-missable. Located just shy of the shores of Lake Titicaca, it is easy to visit both the lake and the ruins in one trip. This site was the capital of a mighty pre-Hispanic empire that ruled over the southern Andes between 500 and 900 AD. Many of the buildings that once made up this ancient capital have been built over in modern times, except the designated protected archeological sites. These Bolivia ruins include Temple Semi-underground, Kalasasaya’s Temple, Akapana’s Pyramid, Pumapumku’s Pyramid. There is also a museum, which contains artifacts from the archaeological site, including a 13,000-year-old skeleton. There are also some restaurants next to the museum, and indigenous people sell handmade goods here, such as pottery and textiles. Visit this exceptional archeological site on a trip to Bolivia and let the monuments of yesteryear reveal their creators’ secrets to you.
