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.

Qhapaq Ñan, Andean Road System (Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru)

Qhapaq Ñan is an extensive Inca communication, trade and defense network of roads, covering more than 18,000 miles through one of the world’s most extreme geographical terrains, linking the snowcapped peaks of the Andes to the coast — running through hot rainforests, fertile valleys and absolute deserts.

Tiwanaku: Spiritual and Political Center of the Tiwanaku Culture (Bolivia)

The city of Tiwanaku, capital of a powerful pre-Hispanic empire that dominated a large area of the southern Andes and beyond, reached its apogee between 500 and 900 AD. Its monumental remains testify to the cultural and political significance of this civilization, which is distinct from any of the other pre-Hispanic empires of the Americas.
