Discover Sillustani in Puno

 

Located to the north of the city of Puno, 35 min by car is the Archaeological Complex of Sillustani on the shores of the Umayo lagoon.

 

This complex is famous for its chullpas, which are circular stone towers erected to house the remains of the main authorities of the ancient settlers of Collao. Some reach up to 12 meters high and are characterized because their base is smaller in diameter than the upper part. A short distance from the archaeological complex is the site museum, where various pieces of the Colla, Tiahuanaco and Inca cultures are preserved.

 

 

Sillustani is located on the banks of the enigmatic Umayo lagoon, which has a maximum depth of 14 m. In the place, the settlers of Atuncolla offer boat rides.

 

 

The complex was declared Cultural Patrimony of the Nation in 2003.

Visiting hours: Monday to Sunday from 07:00 – 18:00 hrs.
