  • This restored Huaca is not bad. It has a small museum which has two mummies which makes it interesting. Of the rest, I found it difficult to identify which parts were restored originals. The girl in the box office was friendly and very biased. I finished all of my journey (Museum + pyramid) in 20 minutes.

  • The huaca is impressive, to the style of the Mayan pyramids, although precisely I was saddened to know that which we see today is not even similar to the original, but a reconstruction almost to 100% made of urgency to save the site. But there is a thing that makes that the visit be forced and are them bales funeral that preserved. Admission is 5 soles.

  • Is located in the Centre of a beautiful neighborhood San Isidro-small place but with a great view and history. Purchase the ticket at the time.

  • There aren't any guided tours but the site is compact and we'll laid out. Unlike Huaca Pucllana this site is quite well preserved as the Incas used it after it was built by the Lima people. The attached museum has some lovely specimens. At only 5 soles it's a bargin
  • Great archeological site of the Lima culture. Not enough info at the site.
  • Really worth a visit. Surprised there weren't more people around.
  • Really cool to see these ruins in the middle of Lima. Reminded me of Monk's Mound in Illinois
  • Not as impressive as Huaca Pucllana, but still a nice place to see if you have extra time while in Lima. It's a nice oasis among all the new high rise buildings, and you can get a real un-spoiled look into the Huaca and learn about the time period in which it was built
