  • The place looks like a market, Castle has more than facades poorly made, full of music, vendors of all within the place and swimming pools and other areas not scentless, "museums" are nothing more than old things from its original owner that does not have a lot of antiques and are poorly maintained, faded photos and displays all disorganized the prices are very high and cannot nor walk quiet within the place because of the large number of "pullers" of the business of food and crafts that inside, the entire site there are speakers of the different "activities" offered by what cannot find a moment of relative silence or to eat calmly. Chancay as people liked and eaten rich and affordable outside the Castle, but the castle is a fiasco

  • The Chancay Castle is a very special place, both by its history and by its infrastructure. They can to stay, although the guide told us that at one time, a visitor said to have felt and seen a ghostly presence. So if you are very brave or does not believe in them, can stay and enjoy this beautiful place that is visited by a large number of tourists, both national and foreign.

  • Beautiful replica in the style of the European castles with Greek and Roman influences. Also, the hotel is very nice with spacious rooms and friendly and helpful staff. Definitely worth a visit if you want to see something different during your stay in Peru.

  • Good construction of the Decade of 1920, price accessible S / 15, unfortunately the tour and the attention of the guides was very brief. During the winter I do not recommend the food of the restaurant Silvia nor stay in the Hotel.
