Archaeological Site

Fuerte de Samaipata (Bolivia)

The archaeological site of Samaipata consists of two parts: the hill with its many carvings, believed to have been the ceremonial center of the old town, and the area which formed the administrative and residential district. The huge sculptured rock is a unique testimony to pre-Hispanic traditions and beliefs and has no parallel anywhere in the Americas.
