  • Impressive archaeological site with a small museum that tells the story of locak and pretty much sums up the pre inca era. Excellent guides.

  • As the Cathedral was closed, instead, led us to Huaca Huallamarca. I think that we enjoy a little just because it was the first site archaeological we visited, but compared to everything there is to see in Lima and Cuzco, really not worth it. I understand that it is quite restored and is very small. It is interesting, but not something not to be missed.

  • Very impressive preinca pyramid. Walk up & down the main Ramp.. very unforgettable.
  • Very short visit in the schedule for this incredible Huaca. You pay for the museum (one room) and pyramid walk with a great view of the city. It is not expensive so it worth!
  • It is a nice small archaeological site that was preserved from the construction industry greediness who wanted to destroy all of it in order to raise a building
  • Another nice archeological place to visit besides Huaca Pucllana
  • it was the first archeological remain to be studied professionally and build a museum with the artifacts found there; interesting that it is in the middle of a residential area which speaks well of the culture and education of the area
