Characteristics of the ruins of Tiwanaku

Tiwanaku is the preferred Andean site in the country of Bolivia. An area of 30 hectares presents a set of Templar remains of the Tihuanaku culture. There is a plateau between two mountains, some fields, and local communities within its environment.

  • The pyramid of Akapana is an imposing pyramid structure of the Altiplano Culture. Akapana has 800 meters of the perimeter, and according to the chronicles at its top, there are beautiful buildings. In 1753, the Spanish Diego Ayardeburo excavated the pyramid, searching for treasures, and destroyed the top. In 1900, the construction of the railroad La Paz-Guaquil used the platforms as a quarry.

Tiwanaku Buildings II

  • Agro-fields (Sucacollos): Fields of crops formed by elongated loins of earth.
