Tiwanaku architecture

Home > Tiwanaku culture

Tiwanaku civilization development is observed on the current ruins.

The monuments found in this area show a level of architectural building of great precision and calculation.

If we observe in detail the monuments and monoliths found on the current ruins we will appreciate the quality of work they had in Tiwanaku.

While the ruins were found basically destroyed, reconstructions suggested by archaeologists in their drawings showed the knowledge of the designers of Tiwanaku, in architecture, had reached monumental levels.
