COPACABANA VILLAGE

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Visit the emblematic spiritual center and the dark Madonna of Copacabana.
  • Sail on the highest navigable lake in the world “Titicaca” 3800m a.s.l.
  • Visit the Titicaca’s sacred Sun Island, and the mysterious Inca Ruins and the fountain of eternal youth.

Copacabana has been a permanent center of tourism and pilgrimages from early times from the beginning of the Colony. The main attraction of the place is an image of the dark Madonna, carved by a native of noble origin called Tito Yupanqui, around the year of 1582. It is not easy to describe the artistic excellences of the image; the case is that contemplating it carefully, you can feel a strong spiritual emotion.

DAY 1

We leave from La Paz running northwest across the Altiplano, along the way you will observe imposing view of the Royal Andean Range as well as the Titicaca Lake. After three and a half hours, we arrive to this emblematic and spiritual center, once we arrive to this pleasant little town of Copacabana, we will find our hotel.
After lunch we will visit the imposing cathedral that shows mudéjar influences in its design, with whitewashed stone walls and multiple domes decorated with deep blue tiles. This temple was originally build by the Augustinian order to house the miraculous Virgin de Copacabana, a beautiful image with a native Andean face, dressed in lavish robes embroidered with gold and silver thread and crowned with a golden halo. The massive gold altarpiece is also remarkable, decorated with silver leaves brought from the Potosi mines and also paintings from the 18th century of invaluable cost decorate the interiors of the church.
We suggest enjoying the beautiful sunset on the best place the top of the Calvary hill.
