Tiwanaku Ruins

Some objects of interest that are formed from solid stones will even seem very similar to Stonehenge and hence Tiwanaku is also known as “the Stonehenge of Americas“. Besides the monuments and ruins, stop by in Tiwanaku church as well. June is the month when the site is quite crowded and therefore, if you want to avoid large tourist groups, you can also visit Tiwanaku in any other month from March till November.
