    What to Expect
    Located near the southern shore of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, the city of Tiwanaku (also spelled Tiahuanaco) was the capital of a powerful pre-Inca civilization that dominated the Andean region between 500 AD and 900 AD. The monumental remains of this great culture include several temples, a pyramid, symbolic gates, monoliths, and mysterious carvings of alien-like faces. Arriving later, the Incas regarded Tiwanaku as the site of creation by their god Viracocha, who rose from the depths of Lake Titicaca.

    This is the most important Bolivian archeological site, where the monolith Bennet can be appreciated, the famous Gate of the Sun, the Kalasasaya temple, the Akapana pyramid, the semi-subterranean Temple, the lithic and ceramic museums, Puma Punku and more.

    Very interesting site, worth the drive through the ugly landscape of El Alto bereft of trees or vegetation. The Sun Gate and the Underworld temple were the highlights of the site for us, the associated museums are very good as well

    It is definitely a great place to visit, however due to the driving time i think there may be other places nearby that may make more sense since the drive is not very pleasant
