El Fuerte de Samaipata, Samaipata
(4.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.
