Copacabana is a small Bolivian town on the shore of Lake Titicaca, with an important church to Virgen de la Candelaria.

The small town of Copacabana, once a remote fishing village, is the main base for visits to the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca. The main attraction is the large whitewashed basilica, which houses an important dark wood Virgin Mary statue. There is a thriving local market, full of colour and interesting produce, some of which is used in the religious ceremonies and car blessings which take place here. From the port, boat trips venture out to the tranquil Sun and Moon Islands. Copacabana is around three hours by road from the co-capital La Paz and is easily accessed from Peru, skirting round the shores of Lake Titicaca.
