The ancient Inca legend tells that at the beginning of time, God Wiracocha left Lake Titicaca and created the sun, the earth and man. To the east of the Capachica peninsula and about 40 km from the city of Puno, the island of Amantaní rises from the deep blue waters of Titicaca. From a distance you can glimpse the ancient andénes, built in pre-Columbian times. On the island you can admire sacred sites of the Pukara and Lupaka pre-Inca cultures and the Inca culture.

Until the mid-twentieth century the island was a land of haciendas. At last, after several uprisings, the people of Amantane managed to expel the landowners and acquire the land. Currently around 4000 people live on the island. They are mostly peasants, who speak their native Quechua and Castilian languages.
