Sillustani, transport in time

 

    The archaeological site of Sillustani is 34 km away from the city of Puno (35 minutes by road), between the Puno - Juliaca highway. This tour allows you to enjoy magnificent landscapes and the imposing PRE-inca architecture. Strategically located on the top of a peninsula surrounded by a beautiful lagoon called Laguna Umayo.

    Sillustani is a cemetery that was built in the 12th century by a civilization that occupied the area before the Inca rule. The creators of the imposing funerary towers are known to belong to the Kolla culture. The most imposing towers were built for important chiefs and priests. For our ancient civilizations cemeteries were places of rest for their dead and that is why they strategically chose beautiful places to build their cemeteries and these were considered sacred places.

    As we walk around the peninsula, we can feel the energy emanating from the site. Many people come to appreciate this unique landscape surrounded by mountains and the beautiful Umayo lagoon, and they do not leave without first feeling their hearts replenish with peace.
