Photo of the Day: Black & White Sunset on Lake Titicaca

| Taken by Jason | 2 Comments » | Photo of the Day

Copacabana is a holy city on the shores of Lake Titicaca in northwestern Bolivia. Once sacred to the Incas, Copacabana is now home to the revered statue of La Virgen de la Candelaria, the patron saint of Bolivia. This city is far less famous than the beach of the same name in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but the latter was named after this one—by grateful Brazilian fisherman who were saved from a storm by the Virgin of Copacabana. In addition to the Catholic basilica, Copacabana is home to several pre-Incan sacred sites and hosts a number of colorful Catholic festivals. And it is the best base in Bolivia for exploring Lake Titicaca and the ancient temples of Isla del Sol. – Sacred Destinations

This photo was taken from the the top Cerro Calvario (Calvary Hill). The summit provides fine views of Lake Titicaca and makes a nice place to watch the sunset.
