Puma Punku

Tiwanaku: Before the Incan Empire
Tiwanaku is an ancient, pre-Incan city considered by archaeologists to be one of the most important pre-Colombian archaeological sites. Puma Punku is part of a large temple complex at the Tiwanaku site, where the world was said to be created. It takes an hour to get there from the Cementerio district of La Paz, and it's well worth it.

The citizens of this ancient state believed that the head was the dwelling place for the soul, so the city is full of stone heads!
