  • Beautiful ruins, with a nice view from the top! Some information about the inca culture. Need to buy ticket in cash. 
  • Very interesting to broaden knowledge of the Andean civilizations. The visit is the small museum space and then the climb to the huaca. Well restored and preserved!

  • Place of attraction in urban area and had modifications of purposes throughout its existence, until with a period of abandonment. If you have time to spare, you can go. There is a bubbling well ingrene to the central plateau.

  • 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.
  • Great site at San Isidro
  • 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
