Impressive

I was in Tiwanaku in November 2007. I went with high expectations, I had read a lot about the sun gate and the Inca rituals which used to be performed at the site. I was stopping in La Paz, and I went with two friends who lived there temporarily. We drove, leaving the Alto was difficult, but once we found our way it was a lot easier. Upon entering, we found a sign that said: "The capital of Tiwanaku empire in classical times was a densely centralised state controlled by top artisans and farmers who supplied a variety of products harvested from different ecological countries." They are still excavating, and I watched how women perform the tasks that are more suitable for men. How they built the walls with stones of different sizes and how they all fit perfectly was really impressive including the blocks for the sun gate and statues.

Site of tiwanaku

There is a lot of the history of the Inca Empire and the achievements in regards to their astronomical knowledge. Incredible findings of monoliths and the door of the sun ... You feel positive energy when you get to the spot, you have to bring sunscreen and a good coat because both the sun and the cold temperatures are quite strong.

Tiahuanaco or Tiwanaku is a place that has always fascinated me since I saw a documentary in which he speculated with the idea that the legend of Atlantis could have originated there. It is located in the central highlands of Bolivia, 20 km from Lake Titicaca. It is a pre-Inca civilization, based on agriculture and livestock, characterized by its architecture decorated with reliefs and stelae, and that included the present territory of Lake Titicaca, between Peru and Bolivia. The ruins so far investigated are composed of seven architectural constructions: Kalasasaya Semi-Subterranean Temple, Pyramid of Akapana, Home Sun and Puma Punku, but much remains to be excavated. The high level of culture is reflected in the ceramic, three-dimensional portraits of human faces in jars, and especially in architectural construction. This culture began around 1500 BC and collapsed circa 1100-1200 d. C. Little is known of the culture and there are many discussions about its influence, as some scientists say that Tiahuanaco was the mother culture of the American civilizations, while others consider capital of an ancient megalithic empire. The visit to the ruins is fascinating, both for what they show, but especially for those who we can imagine what was there over 2000 millenniums, because even now Lake Titicaca is at 20km away, archeological finds indicate that by was much closer and that Tiwanaku had a port on the lake

Tiahuanaco o Tiwanaku es un lugar que siempre me ha fascinado desde que vi un documental en el que especulaba con la idea de que la leyenda de la Atlántida pudiera tener su origen allí. Está ubicado en el altiplano central boliviano, a 20 km del lago Titicaca.

Es una civilización anterior a la inca, basada en la agricultura y la ganadería, caracterizada por su arquitectura decorada con relieves y estelas, y que abarcaba el territorio actual del Lago Titicaca, entre el Perú y Bolivia.

Las ruinas hasta ahora investigadas están compuestas por siete construcciones arquitectónicas: Kalasasaya, Templete Semisubterráneo, Pirámide de Akapana, Portada del Sol y Puma Punku, pero aún queda mucho por excavar.

El alto nivel de su cultura se refleja en la cerámica, con retratos tridimensionales de rostros humanos en vasijas, y sobre todo en las construcciones arquitectónicas.

Esta cultura se inició alrededor del 1500 a.C., y colapsó alrededor del año 1100 a 1200 d. C. Se conoce muy poco de la cultura y hay muchas discusiones sobre su influencia, ya que algunos científicos dicen que Tiahuanaco fue la cultura madre de las civilizaciones americanas, mientras que otros la consideran capital de un antiguo imperio megalítico.

La visita a las ruinas es fascinante, tanto por lo que muestran, pero sobre todo por los que nos podemos imaginar qué había allí hace más de 2000 milenios, ya que aunque ahora el lago Titicaca esté a 20km de distancia, hallazgos arqueológicos indican que antes estaba mucho más cerca y que Tihuanaco tenía un puerto sobre el lago

Tiahuanaco is the capital of a pre-Hispanic empire which had a great importance on the area of ​​the southern Andes. The remains of monuments testify to the cultural and political significance of this civilization, which distinguished between pre-Columbian South American empires. This archaeological site is located 45 minutes from La Paz and embraces the current expanse of Lake Titicaca. There are seven major buildings, which are Kalasasaya the semi underground temple, pyramid Akapana, Kantatallita, Kerikala, there Putuni Puma Punku. The architecture of the city is characterized by high and low reliefs carved in stone. The other main manifestation of this culture was ceramics, which include vases ceremonies and masks human traits. There are also textiles and architectural works that were oriented according to astronomical time. Tiahuanaco is a fascinating archaeological site, it is part of the World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is a primitive civilization was highly developed, and knew, for example how to redirect rainwater to crops, a technique that continues today. We can go in one day from La Paz with an agency that is better because the bus is a bit complicated.

La ville de Tiahuanaco est la capitale d´un empire préhispanique qui eut une grande importance sur la zone des Andes méridionales. Les restes des monuments témoignent de l´importance culturelle et politique de cette civilisation, qui se distingua entre les différents empires précolombiens d´Amérique du Sud.

Cette zone archéologique se trouve à 45 minutes de la Paz et embrasse l´étendue actuelle du lac Titicaca. Il y a sept constructions majeures, qui sont le Kalasasaya, le temple semi souterrain, la Pyramide de Akapana, Kantatallita, Kerikala, Putuni y Puma Punku. L´architecture de la ville se caractérise par des hauts et bas reliefs sculptés dans la pierre. L´autre manifestation principale de cette culture était la céramique, dont on retrouve des vases de cérémonies, et des masques à traits humains. Il y a également des textiles et des œuvres architectoniques qui s´orientaient en fonction de l´astronomie du moment.

Tiahuanaco constitue un centre archéologique fascinant, il fait partie du patrimoine mondial de l´humanité de l´UNESCO, c´est une civilisation primitive qui fut extrêmement développée, et savait par exemple comment rediriger les eaux de pluies vers les cultures, une technique qui perdure de nos jours. On peut y aller en une journée depuis la Paz, avec une agence c´est mieux car en bus c´est un peu compliqué.

Knowing tiwanaku

Tiwanaku is very interesting, we put on our trip to Machu Pichu for being a place that showed the pre-Inca civilization. Turisbus hired a tour in Hotel Rosario La Paz and it was very worthwhile. We visited a site that is still being excavated, with a pyramid hidden and not fully excavated yet. Full of monoliths and now say, buy there with the girls in the park exit was cheaper than the Witches' Market.

Conhecendo tiwanaku

Tiwanaku é muito interessante, colocamos na nossa viagem a Machu Pichu por ser um local que mostrava a civilização pré-inca. Contratamos um passeio pela Turisbus no Hotel Rosario de La Paz e valeu muito à pena. Visitamos um local que ainda está sendo escavado, com uma pirâmide encoberta e não totalmente escavada ainda. Cheio de monolitos e já digo, comprar ali com as moças na saída do parque foi mais barato que no Mercado das Bruxas.

Civilization Tiwinaku is ubiquitous in La Paz, but also at the site of Tiwanaku about 70 kilometers from the capital. This pre-Inca civilization lived nearly 2500 years and ruled at the same time that the Persians and Egyptians. I went to visit the archaeological site. Large well I took since it was very interesting and informative, learning a lot about this much less known than the Inca civilization. It reveals the sun gate, "recovery" centuries later in the comic book "Tintin and the Temple of the Sun."

La civilisation de Tiwinaku est omniprésente à La Paz, mais également au site même de Tiwanaku à environ 70 kilomètres de la capitale. Cette civilisation pré-inca a vécu près de 2500 ans et a régné au même moment que les Perses et les Egyptiens. Je suis allé visiter ce site archéologique. Grand bien m’en a pris puisque ce dernier a été très intéressant et instructif, apprenant beaucoup sur cette civilisation bien moins connue que les Incas. On y découvre la porte du soleil, "reprise" des siècles plus tard dans la bande dessinée "Tintin et le temple du soleil".

The site of Tiwanaku is what remains of the capital of the pre-Inca Tiwanaku civilization - Aymara, whose rule lasted about a thousand years before mysteriously stop. This site is still under restoration and the Great Pyramid is being dredging. I found the site interesting, even if for an ancient civilization, the remains are actually quite thin.

Le site de Tiwanaku est ce qui reste de la capitale de la civilisation pré Inca Tiwanaku - Aymara, dont la domination a duré environ mille ans avant de cesser mystérieusement. Ce site est encore en restauration et la grande pyramide est en cours de désensablement. J'ai trouvé le site intéressant, même si pour une civilisation millénaire, les vestiges sont finalement assez minces.

After a full day knowing La Paz, we reserve the second day to visit Tihuanacu (Tiwanaku). You can go to Tihuanacu in several ways. For a package sold at travel agencies in La Paz, which skirt around Bs 120 (Transportation, guide and entrance to the site) or go on their own, leaving around 100 Bs. Bs 100 are included in the transportation and entry to the site. First, you must go to the main cemetery of La Paz, taking one of several vanzinhas that make the route, paying Bs 1. Arriving at the cemetery, looking good, you will find numerous vanzinhas that transport to Tihuanacu for 10 Bs. The departure time is variable and depends on the capacity of the van. If you are reasonably full, it's time to leave! We woke up early, had breakfast, close to daily and left our bags in a closet in their own hostel. Just ask that they leave even if you will no longer stay there. We took the van in a hostel near the Calle to the cemetery paying Bs 1. Arriving at the cemetery, we saw the queue for Tihuanacu vans as well as the bus to Copacabana. We entered the first of the queue that formed and waited 30 minutes. In the intervening time, we saw a Tchola sitting on a gas canister. So far so good, everything is normal. Then the gas truck arrived and when we saw, there she was holding two bottles as if they were baskets of cotton. We left at 9:40 and headed towards Tihuanacu. On the way we were stopped by a blitz, we hardly left the van next trip. We arrived in El Alto and more people entered the van, filling all the places that were empty. After that, the trip was quiet and about 30 minutes later we were in Tihuanacu. The vans have to end the central square of the town, but she before for people to come down and catch the shortest path to the ruins. We did not know that and had to walk a bit to reach. On arrival, the first thing we did was buy a ticket. We try to haggle, but it did not work, Bs 80 for each person. At the door of the box office, some Bolivians are waiting and offering tour guide services charging around 60 Bs. We do not hire the guide to save money and also because we do not need, since we had an idea we would see on the site. After removing the ticket, visited a museum with artifacts found at the site, which has a bit of culture Tihuanacu. Akapana After visiting the museum, we went to the site itself. The first thing we saw upon entering was a pyramid Akapana. You do not see a perfect pyramid, but you can imagine it. Unfortunately, the pyramid is very deteriorated and noticed that there was a restoration work in progress, due to the fresh plaster on the sides of the pyramid. We climb towards the top of the monument which had a broad view of all the ruins. Templete went down the pyramid and enter what Bolivians call Templete, which are ruins under the ground level. For me it is one of the most beautiful ruins I saw in Tihuanacu. Are well maintained and are very famous. In the middle of the place, we saw three aligned stones. As we had no guide, we begin to imagine what they were for. Several theories have been raised, but no very plausible. Another thing that caught our attention were the faces that come out of the stones of the walls surrounding the site. Kantatallita, Kalasasaya and Putuni Leaving Templete, went toward Kantatallita, a ruin located to the right of the pyramid. The ruins of this place are very badly preserved and can only see a few isolated stones. However, there did not find any tourist, and the vision of the pyramid is very privileged. After Kantatallita, went to Kalasasaya, where there are the statues and the famous Puerta del Sol Before arriving, we stopped to take some photos of the main entrance to Kalasasaya. Climbing the stairs on the side of Kalasasaya we saw the main attractions of the site. We left the Puerta del Sol to last and came the statues (monoliths) which are respectively in front of the main door and side Kalasasaya toward the pyramid. Then we went to visit the great Puerta. It really is a construction that leave jaws dropped. After that, we went to see the Puerta de la Luna, which is much smaller than the sun, but it is interesting because it has a view of the mountains in the background. We left the main site and we went into the museum [name of museum]. Honestly, the museum is falling apart. Some rooms were closed for renovation, the roof was visibly worn out and we got to see in a room with several statues Tihuanacu reforms without any protection. Regrettable. The only thing we can see and that was very interesting was the giant statue that is similar to the statue in front of the main entrance of Kalasasaya, but with a 3 meters high. Missing only one location to visit and this is not very close to the main site. Leaving the museum, turning right, walk down the road for at least 1km until you reach the last ruin site, Puma Punku. The latter is as God made him, which makes him more interesting than the others, in my opinion. View all attractions, so around 15h, we decided to have lunch. Try some restaurants, but none was serving lunch. We found one that was serving only the menu options are not appealing, then only ask for a Coke. To follow, or Social Club ate what was left of them. We returned to the same place where we had come to take vanzinha to La Paz found that they do not go directly to La Paz and El Alto to yes, and from there, others go to La Paz The price of vans to El Alto is 8 Bs and La Paz, Bs 1. We arrived in La Paz, we took our bags and went running to the bus terminal (about 1km from the Iglesia de San Francisco, up the Avenida Mariscal Santa Cruz). It was around 17:30 and our bus was scheduled for 20h. We wanted to arrive early to avoid pitfalls. In many reports I've read, people said that companies could sell two tickets to the same place, so we did not want to risk it. Walking to the terminal seek a place on the way to dinner. We found a place that had rice, beans and meat, and the dish 10 Bs and Bs 2 by Coca Cola 200 ml (very cheap!). We arrived at the terminal after a climb from hell and hope to embark up to 20h. Omar went by the company, not left to be desired (in the round!), For he has fulfilled what he promised (heating and armchairs semi-bed). Before boarding the bus, we had to buy the ticket using the machine, which costs 2 Bs and is required to board. One tip I would give is to be careful with the luggage. If you prefer to leave them in the luggage compartment, take care. I've heard reports that on landing the bags were taken because there is no identification of luggage. On this trip, we take all luggage with us, under the seat. Only when I could not put down the bank we were leaving the compartment.

Depois de um dia inteiro conhecendo La Paz, reservamos o segundo dia para visitar Tihuanacu (Tiwanaku). Você pode ir à Tihuanacu de diversas formas. Por um pacote vendido em agências de turismo em La Paz, que saia por volta de Bs. 120 (Transporte, entrada no sítio e guia) ou ir por conta própria, saindo por volta de Bs. 100. Nos Bs. 100 estão inclusos o transporte e a entrada no sítio. Primeiramente, você deve ir ao cemitério principal de La Paz, pegando uma das diversas vanzinhas que fazem o percurso, pagando Bs. 1. Ao chegar no cemitério, procurando bem, você encontra inúmeras vanzinhas que fazem o transporte para Tihuanacu por Bs. 10. O horário de saída é variável e depende da lotação da van. Se estiver razoavelmente cheia, é hora de sair!

Acordamos bem cedo, tomamos café, fechamos a diária e deixamos nossas malas em um quartinho no próprio hostal. É só pedir que eles deixam mesmo se você não vai mais se hospedar lá. Pegamos a van em uma Calle perto do hostal para o cemitério pagando Bs. 1. Chegando ao cemitério, vimos a fila de vans para Tihuanacu assim como a de ônibus para Copacabana. Entramos na primeira da fila que se formava e esperamos por 30 minutos. Nesse intervalo de tempo, vimos uma tchola sentada em um botijão de gás. Até ai tudo bem, tudo normal. Então o caminhão de gás chegou e quando vimos, lá estava ela segurando 2 botijões como se fossem cestas de algodão.

Saímos às 9h40 e seguimos rumo a Tihuanacu. No caminho fomos parados por uma blitz, que quase não deixou a van seguir viagem. Chegamos em El Alto e mais pessoas entraram na van, preenchendo todos os lugares que estavam vazios. Depois disso, a viagem foi tranqüilo e mais ou menos 30 minutos depois estávamos em Tihuanacu. As vans tem como ponto final a praça central da cidadezinha, mas ela para antes para as pessoas descerem e pegarem o menor caminho para as ruínas. Não sabíamos disso e tivemos que andar um pouco mais para chegar.

Na chegada, a primeira coisa que fizemos foi comprar o ingresso. Tentamos pechinchar, mas não teve jeito, Bs. 80 para cada pessoa. Na porta da bilheteria, alguns bolivianos ficam esperando e oferecendo serviços de guia turístico cobrando em torno de Bs. 60. Não contratamos o guia para economizar e também porque não achamos necessário, já que tínhamos uma idéia do veríamos no local. Após retirar o ticket, visitamos um museu com os artefatos encontrados no local, que conta um pouco da cultura de Tihuanacu.

Akapana
Depois de visitar o museu, fomos para o sítio propriamente dito. A primeira coisa que vimos ao entrar foi a pirâmide de Akapana. Não se vê uma pirâmide perfeita, mas é possível imaginá-la.

Infelizmente, a pirâmide está muito deteriorada e notamos que havia um trabalho de restauração em andamento, devido ao fresco do reboco nas laterais da pirâmide. Subimos rumo ao topo do monumento onde tivemos uma visão ampla de todas as ruínas.

Templete
Descemos a pirâmide e entramos no que os bolivianos chamam de Templete, que são ruínas sob o nível do solo. Para mim é uma das ruínas mais belas que eu vi em Tihuanacu. Estão bem conservadas e são muito famosas. No meio do local, vimos três pedras alinhadas. Como não tínhamos guia, começamos a imaginar para que serviam. Várias teorias foram levantadas, mas nenhuma muito plausível. Outra coisa que chamou a nossa atenção foram as faces que saiam das pedras dos muros que cercavam o local.

Kantatallita, Kalasasaya e Putuni
Deixando o Templete, fomos em direção a Kantatallita, uma ruína localizada à direita da pirâmide. As ruínas desse local estão muito mal conservadas e só conseguimos ver algumas pedras isoladas. Entretanto, lá não encontramos nenhum turista, e a visão da pirâmide é muito privilegiada. Depois de Kantatallita, fomos para Kalasasaya, onde se localizam as estátuas e a famosa Puerta del Sol. Antes de chegar, paramos para tirar algumas fotos da entrada principal para Kalasasaya.

Subindo as escadas na lateral de Kalasasaya, vímos as principais atrações do sítio. Deixamos a Puerta del Sol para último e fomos visitar as estátuas (monolitos) que se encontram respectivamente na frente da porta principal de Kalasasaya e na lateral em direção à pirâmide. Em seguida fomos visitar a grande Puerta. Realmente é uma construção que deixar o queixo caído.

Depois disso, fomos ver a Puerta de la Luna, que é bem menor do que a do sol, mas é interessante porque tem uma vista das montanhas ao fundo.

Saímos do sítio principal e fomos em direção ao museu [Nome do Museu]. Sinceramente, o museu está caindo aos pedaços. Algumas salas estavam fechadas para reforma, o teto estava visivelmente desgastado e chegamos a ver uma sala em reformas com várias estátuas Tihuanacu sem nenhuma proteção. Lamentável. A única coisa que conseguimos ver e que foi muito interessante foi a estátua gigante que é semelhante à estátua em frente a entrada principal de Kalasasaya, só que com uns 3 metros de altura.

Faltava somente uma localidade para se visitar e essa não está muito próxima ao sítio principal. Saindo do museu, virando a direita, caminhamos pela estrada por pelo menos 1km até chegar na última ruína do sítio, Puma Punku. Esse último está como Deus o deixou, o que o deixa mais interessante que os demais, na minha opinião.

Vista todas as atrações, isso por volta das 15h, decidimos almoçar. Procuramos alguns restaurantes, mas nenhum estava servindo almoço. Encontramos um que estava servindo só que as opções de cardápio não agradavam, então pedimos somente uma coca-cola. Para acompanhar, comemos Club Social ou o que havia sobrado deles.

Voltamos para o mesmo lugar onde tínhamos chegado para pegar a vanzinha para La Paz. Descobrimos que elas não vão diretamente para La Paz e sim para El Alto, e de lá, outras vão para La Paz. O preço das vans para El Alto é de Bs. 8 e para La Paz, Bs. 1.

Chegamos em La Paz, pegamos nossas malas e fomos correndo para o terminal de ônibus (cerca de 1km da Iglesia de San Francisco, subindo a Av. Mariscal Santa Cruz). Era por volta das 17h30 e nosso ônibus estava marcado para as 20h. Queríamos chegar cedo para evitar imprevistos. Em muitos relatos que li, as pessoas diziam que as empresas poderiam vender duas passagens para o mesmo lugar, então não queríamos arriscar. Caminhando para o terminal procuramos pelo caminho um lugar para jantar. Encontramos um lugar que tinha arroz, feijão e carne, sendo Bs. 10 pelo prato e Bs. 2 pela coca-cola de 200 ml (muito barato!).

Chegamos ao terminal depois de uma subida dos infernos e esperamos até às 20h para embarcar. Fomos pela companhia Omar, que não deixou a desejar (na ida!), pois cumpriu o que prometeu (calefação e poltronas semi-cama). Antes de embarcar no ônibus, tivemos que comprar o ticket de utilização do terminal, que custa Bs. 2 e é obrigatório para poder embarcar.

Uma dica que eu dou é ter cuidado com a bagagem. Se você preferir deixá-las no compartimento de bagagem, tome cuidado. Já ouvi relatos que no desembarque as malas foram pegas, pois não há identificação das bagagens. Nessa viagem, levamos toda a bagagem conosco, em baixo do banco. Só quando não dava para colocar de baixo do banco que deixávamos no compartimento.

Tiwanaku site is what remains of the capital of the pre-Inca Tiwanaku civilization (Aymara), whose domination lasted a thousand years before mysteriously stopped. This site is still under restoration. Here's a great pyramid of sand that we can see better when work is finished. I found a very interesting place, but for civilization, the remains left are very slim.

El sitio de Tiwanaku es lo que queda de la capital pre-inca de la civilización Tiwanaku (Aimara), cuya dominación duró unos mil años antes de pararse misteriosamente. Este sitio está aún en fase de restauración. Aquí hay una gran pirámide de arena que podremos contemplar mejor cuando terminen los trabajos. Me pareció un lugar muy interesante, aunque para civilización, los restos que quedan son muy escasas.
