In the heart of the Andes, Peru and Bolivia share one of the most sacred places in Latin America: Lake Titicaca.

This immense water mirror, roughly the size of Corsica, was considered a sacred site by the Incas. In the 15th century, they made it the cradle of their civilisation, the sun’s place of birth.

And yet, beneath the lake’s waters, lies a different story. A team of Belgian and Peruvian archaeologists are shedding light on the Tiwanaku, a great civilisation eclipsed by the Incas.
