The part of the interesting Museum, has a bit of everything. We did not stay for lunch, our visit lasted less than an hour and a half.
I liked it very much. The only thing I didn't like was variety of food, it was quite delicious, mostly pork though. The castle is about 60 km from Lima, less than 2 hours driving. It has some small museums, several restaurants and a swimming pool. Prices are ok, I'd say. It's a good place to expend a day with family.
Es un bonito lugar para pasar en familia un domingo. Todo adentro casi cuesta 5 soles la entrada general 20 soles
A must see place. You won't regret it.
Chancay castle is a beautiful modern folly, it embraces several ancient cultures Romans, King Arthur and India. Inside is a small but interesting collection of ancient artifacts including mummified bodies. It would appeal to children and adults alike and I for one am glad I stopped by. The views along the coast are magnificent.It doesn't cater to English speakers but it's still a lot of fun and cheap. Think Disneyworld meets Incas and King Arthur. Good old fashion cheesy fun.
