Bolivia - Tiwanaku: Spiritual and Political Centre of the Tiwanaku Culture
The second of the four postcards sent by Jose from La Paz in Bolivia. This postcard shows Spiritual and Political Centre of the Tiwanaku Culture in Province of Ingavi, Department of La Paz.
The ruins of Tiwanaku bear striking witness to the power of the empire that played a leading role in the development of the Andean pre-Hispanic civilization. The buildings are exceptional examples of the ceremonial and public architecture and art of one of the most important manifestations of the civilizations of the region.
