  • Again after much time, 20 Suns per person entry I found much but tour has changed a bit, now have rooms of old photographs, other antique pieces and one of animals dissected that if I found attractive, which I do not recommend is to eat there with my spouse, we wanted to have lunch and dreadful care take a lot and the price is high, when I went the weekend had a more or less entertaining show but I think it is just to go one morning because almost everything is Commerce and there is little to do I just do not say that it is very bad, it has improved a little nothing more

  • I walked to a trip to grasp the old architecture of the Castle, and with what I first find is that the place has been in converted into pure commerce site that completely violates the history of the place. The historic site is set to be used by several restaurants for the most part, in rooms inside the Castle are selling memories, others are renting birds so that people take photos with them and more things that should be outside, There is also the fact that they are doing shows in the central courtyard of the Castle, the place is in bad condition, multi-site are staining with correction fluid on the walls, they are including ornaments in the columns of a totally alien culture Castle to the our. I was surprised to see that throughout history is being converted into a neighborhood or circus fair, I no longer know if Castle presenting us is the original version or is that Castle administrators violated the history to make more 'striking' place. Which, let me tell you, it is leaving us ill stand before so many tourists that, on my visit, I was able to see.

  • The place I was disappointed, is full of restaurants, shops, etc. that give the image of a market, not a castle. I think that they wasted the chance to make it better since it is very close to Lima and you can receive many visitors.

  • 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.
