Isla del Sol – a sacred place for the Incas and rich in mythology. Inca tradition believes that the creator god Virracocha arose from Lake Titicaca and created the Sun on the north of the island. He also created Manco Capac and his wife Mama Ocllo, the ‘Adam and Eve’ of the Incas, who emerged from the Titicaca Rock and went on to form the Inca Nation from Cuzco.
I spent four days on the Island. With no roads or vehicles, and small population of farmers and fisherman scattered around the coast, it is an enchanting and idyllic place.
