Sucre It is the official capital of In 1992 UNESCO declarad the city a “Patrimonio Histórico y cultural de la Humanidad”. Thereare two universities, the oldest dating from 1624. Long isolation has helped itto preserve its courtly charm; by tradition all buildings in the centre arepainted in their original colonial white. It is sometimes referred to as LaCiudad Blanca. The city has grown rapidly since the mid- 1980s following severe drought which drove campesinos from the countryside and the collapse of tin mining in 1985.


Located a few hours from Sucre, one of its primary attractions is the Sunday market, when communities from around the region interconvene to sell and exchange goods. The whole town turns into a colorful market, with the vibrant traditional dress of the indigenous peoples and the equally vibrant colors of weavings characteristic of the region.

Ancient Civilizations

La Paz

La Paz, the highest capital city in the world, looks like a moon crater. The city is 4km (2mi) above sea level, situated on a canyon floor which shows only a hint of greenery. Even oxygen is at a premium. Fortunately, the life and color of La Paz is found in its people and culture, not its landscape. Find a good vantage point and simply watch the passing throng: women wearing bowler hats (worn on the side if they're single and on top if they're married) and voluminous skirts; white-shirted businessmen and politicians; machine-gun toting military; and beggars asleep under awnings, wrapped up like sarcophagi.

People congregate around the splendid Iglesia de San Francisco (construction began in 1549) with its arresting blend of mestizo and Spanish styles. Behind the church is the Witches' Market where you can buy a bizarre assortment of goods including amulets, potions, delicately crafted silver jewelery, sweets and dried llama fetuses. La Paz also has a number of museums, including the Museo Costumbrista Juan de Vargas, which contains some superb dioramas of the city, and the Museo de Metales Preciosos Pre-Columbinos, which houses three impressively presented salons of pre-Conquest silver, gold and copper works. Standing guard over all this is Illimani (6460m/21,188ft), some 60km (37mi) to the east, which is arguably Bolovia's most famous peak.
Most of the budget accommodation and cheap eateries can be found in the area between Calle Manco Capac and the Prado. For entertainment, there are folk-music shows, bars (generally with incoherent patrons), several good discos and numerous cinemas. Because of the often chilly temperatures, warm clothing is essential throughout the year.
Around La Paz is the aptly named Valle de la Luna, which is an eroded hillside maze of miniature canyons and pinnacles 11km (7mi) east of the city; the spectacular Zongo Valley, 50km (31mi) north of the city, which has ice caves, turquoise lakes and the peak of Huayna Potosí; and the historical ceremonial center of Tiahuanaco, 70km (43mi) west of the city, which is Bolivia's most important archaeological site.

Ubicado a 34 Km. de Laja es conocido, internacionalmente como 'Cuna del Hombre Americano y Ciudad Santuario', y capital de la Cultura Tiwanakota, que floreció alrededor de 700 A.C.

Una de las teorías sobre el origen de su nombre refiere al conocimiento de Tiwanaku, como la 'Taipicala o Piedra Central', por haberse fundado el imperio en sus alrededores, que fue base de la cultura altiplánica. Se caracteriza por sus grandes templos de los que sobresalen las pirámides de Akapana y Puma Punku, El templete Semisubterraneo, la famosa Puerta del Sol, el Monolito Ponce, los restos de Kantataita, Putuni y Kerikala que ocupan aproximadamente 30 hectáreas excavadas.

No existe una definición concreta de lo que significa Kallawayas pero es importante manifestar que el nombre corresponde a fonemas aymaras. Por ejemplo 'Qolla waya', quiere decir llevar un medicamento al hombro.

El origen social de los 'Callawayas' permite entrever un mestizaje muy marcado y puesto de relieve en las poblaciones de 'Curva y Chajaya'

La medicina natural de los Kallawayas, según se dice, es la herencia de la ciencia médica de los Incas y conocen un gran número de plantas medicinales y sobre todo de las propiedades de éstas; de la misma manera conocen las aplicaciones curativas de ciertos animales, empleando cataplasmas que brindan salud y bienestar.


Tiene por lo menos tres mil años de tradición citadina desde que se inició como Centro Sagrado de la aldea 'Chiripa'. En la región se puede encontrar restos de muchos asentamientos posteriores como el de los Incas. Según crónicas de Salas (epoca colonial) 'Ccoppa-kcaguaña' es el camino de estrellas que guía a la casa de nuestro padre Dios y Señor, porque desde este punto se aprecia en toda su magnitud la constelación de la Cruz del Sur, regidor de la ubicación en tiempo y espacio de culturas anteriores.

Titicaca Lake

Lake Traditionally regarded as the highest navigable body of water in the world (though there are higher lakes in Chile and Peru), Lake Titicaca is immense: its dimensions measure 233km (145mi) from northwest to southeast and 97km (60mi) from northeast to southwest. The lake has an indented shoreline, 36 islands and exceptionally clear sapphire-blue water. Titicaca is revered by the Indians who live on its shores, and the Islas del Sol and Islas de la Luna, two islands in the lake, are the legendary sites of the Inca's creation myths. The main town in the area is Copacabana, which has a sparkling white Moorish-style cathedral and is host to the Fiesta de la Virgen de Candelaria. Isla Suriqui is world-renowned for its totora reed boats, Isla Kalahuta for its stone tombs and Isla Incas is reputed in legend to have an underground network of passageways linking it to the old Inca capital of Cuzco in Peru.

Travelers should wear protective head gear around the lake because the thin air results in scorchingly high levels of ultraviolet radiation. Half of the lake lies within the borders of Peru and Puno is the principal settlement and main center for excursions on the Peruvian shore of the lake.

Las misiones Jesuíticas bolivianas se edificaron desde 1691 hasta 1760.

Menos de un siglo permanecieron los religiosos en tierras Chiquitanas creando admirables sociedades en productividad, orden y arquitectura. El 13 de octubre de 1767, el Rey de España ordenó que los misioneros jesuitas fueran expulsados de las posesiones de España en el nuevo mundo, esta expulción dejo a las comunidades a merced de los españoles y portugueses.

La arquitectura de los templos de estilo barroco mestizo, destaca, pinturas murales y tallado de maderas en los retablos, púlpitos y cajonerías. Las iglesias emulan la apariencia de construcciones del país de origen del jesuita Martín Schmit, sacerdote suizo y su principal arquitecto, combinadas con impresionantes columnas talladas en madera, hermosas pinturas y altares dorados.

El turismo cultural de las misiones esta centrado en sus iglesias y también nos ofrece una dinámica actividad artesanal. La naturaleza y sus poblaciones indígenas, sus tradicionales pueblos con costumbres ancestrales constituyen un atractivo cultural de gran importancia en la zona.
