All Tiwanaku Ruins Tours
Perched high in the altiplano, on the southern shores of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia rests Tiwanaku: the spiritual and political center of the Tiwanaku Culture. 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.
