The Ancient Ruins of Tiahuanaco (Tiwanaku)
Up on the highlands in the opposite direction (heading Southwest from La Paz and toward Lake Titicaca) are the ruins of Tiwanaku (sometimes spelled Tiahuanaco) which was the ceremonial epicenter of Andean culture for thousands of years and has a great museum and of course, ruins of temples and monoliths as well as the Puerta del Sol (Sun Gate) that shouldn't be missed. In this section you can read about its history and watch some videos on the legends and myths that surround this unearthly city. You'll hear what scientists have to say about whether or not Tiwanaku is the oldest city on Earth.
