  • It is archaeological site in San Isidro. If I have to choose between this and the Miraflores, get the second. But if you have with time, visit. This is much smaller q the Miraflores and have no guide. Has a small museum.

  • Example of how come together the private sector and the public for preservation of the history of our ancient Peru. Located in the heart of San Isidro perfectly put in value, even with lighting

  • 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
  • The place is right in the Middle of the City and offers a very nice view of the city and of the huaca itself. It is also an interesting place to learn about funeral rituals and momification. The little museum that is next to it offers a quite amazing set of artifacts including a 1600 years mummy! It is reccommended to visit if you are passing by, it won´t take more than half an hour.
  • In the middle of san isidro... But a very small site..
  • Weird site. I couldn't get in, though, because they require exact change, which is ridiculous.
  • Reconstructed pyramid in the middle of Lima... You have to wonder if this ancient structure was any different a millennia ago, but this rebuilt archeological tower spans a very fashionable and upscale area, and is a delight to visit and climb up to see the surrounding city.
