Package Itinerary

1. La Paz – Tiwanaku – La Paz

We leave around 08h30 for our visit to the ruins of Tiwanaku, the capital of the pre-Inca empire. Tiwanaku was one of the oldest civilizations in the world and is recognized by Andean scholars as one of the most important precursors to the Inca Empire. We visit the Pyramid Akapana and the semi-subterranean temple as well as the archaeological area where we can see the Temple of Kalasasaya one of the largest and oldest ceremonial centers of the world.

We also visit the famous “Puerta del Sol” (Gateway of the Sun) which is a monolithic structure that weighs about 10 tons. On the Puerta del Sol we can observe the Tiwanakota calendar which is expressed in 365.24 days distributed over 12 months. We visit the archaeological museum where we can observe the Monolith Bennet which measures approximately 7 meters and weighs 20 tons and we also get an insight into the 13 centuries of history which make Tiwanaku the oldest civilization in Latin America. After our visit to the site, we have lunch in a typical restaurant where we have the opportunity to taste quinua; the most important grain of the Andes. Before returning to La Paz we visit Puma Punku "The Door of the Puma” and upon arrival in La Paz, the rest of the day is free. End of our services.
