  • Pin the expression of the chieftain, seem to coming out to battle it out for their freedom. A curiosity, Humahuaca has no date of independence, because it was never conquered.

  • Important monument located at the top of a grand staircase. He is visiting it because it is very close to the plaza, but from the historical point of view tourist (not), there's nothing remarkable.

  • Great monument. Peaceful village with amazing llama steak and live music
  • It's really a peaceful city
  • Very peaceful and the view is Nice !
  • On our two-day tour of Bolivia, we passed through the very typical mountain village of HUMAHUACA, which has fully adjusted to the numerous tourists. "Cute" young girls offer pottery and to help keep of their families in (child labor!). To fit the young Indians, who play splendid Andean music to the long lunch in the restaurant!

  • Impressive monument... It has a phenomenal Esplanade surrounded by stalls of crafts and vendors, is a walk in the open air where you can spend a couple of hours, it flows into the main square. Behind the monument are the mountains in its splendor.
