Isla de la Luna

From Openwaterpedia

Isla de la Luna ("Island of the Moon") is an island in Lago Titicaca, Bolivia, east of the Isla del Sol ("Island of the Sun"). Legends in Inca mythology refer to the island as the location where Viracocha commanded the rising of the moon. Archeological ruins of an Inca nunnery were found on the eastern shore.
