Sillustani Archaeological Site

This site lies on the shores of Lake Umayo. It is famous for its Aymara funerary tombs, which are circular stone towers built to house the remains of the main rulers of the ancient Colla people. The towers are up to 39 feet tall and are unique because the base of each tower is smaller in diameter than the top. Near the archaeological complex is the site's museum, where different aspects of the Colla, Tiahuanaco and Inca cultures are preserved.
