The funerary towers most important is known as lagartos's chullpa, it’s the most representative attractive of Sillustani.

Those funeral towers were built by an Aymara-speaking tribe, which dominated the Puno region before the Incas. Ancestor worship was an integral part of the Aymara culture, and the cylindrical towers were built to provide a connection between life and death. Each tower contained the remains of one important member of the tribe mummified in the fetal position to recreate birth.

The person was buried with prized possessions as objects of gold, silver, pottery utensils and food to take to the next world, this custom (it was practiced) because beliefs said that after the death resurrected elsewhere where they had to eat and drink, as they did before dying.

Umayo Lagoon is an impressive water mirror reflecting the blue sky and white clouds of Puno. Which shelter small beautiful island (National Reserve) to protect the Vicuñas.
