Trip Planner: South America / Bolivia / Santa Cruz Department / Samaipata / Historic Sites / El Fuerte de Samaipata
Visit a pre-Incan site at El Fuerte de Samaipata, which features ruins of a 15th-century temple complex. The well-preserved buildings and these carvings led to the site becoming a World Heritage site. The site was actually in use long before the 15th century, but the majority of the structures and carvings came from the Inca between the 15th and 17th centuries. Hire a tour guide and walk through the complex, seeing the different buildings and learning about their usage long ago. Behind the structures lie the carvings, characters carved into the stone of the mountain by the inhabitants.

this is an archeological place. there where a lot of diferent cultures one of them was the inca culture!
aun que los funcionarios no son muy receptivos el paseo vale la pena, siempre llevar agua y algunas galletas, leyendo un poco no es necesario el servicio de los guías del lugar.even that officials are not very responsive ride worth, always carry water and some cookies, reading a bit don't need the service of the guides in place.View original
