The Fort of Samaipata is an interesting attraction for those who have an interest in culture, archeology, or geology. Some say this is the most important archeological site in Bolivia. It includes ruins from 3 distinct cultures as well as a massive rock with ancient carvings. The rock is the largest known monolith in the world. You can hike or take a taxi on the 11 km paved road that leads from Samaipata to the fort.

Massive Incan ruins, that Samaipata is probably most well known for. It is a rather mysterious site, and much of it has yet to be excavated. Make sure you take one of the guided tours, because if you just hike it you will miss out on most of the history, as the area isn't particularly well labeled
