  • This won't take too much time off your trip but it is very interesting. There is a very small museum on the side. There are no tours but everything had signs in english and Spanish. We truly enjoyed i...  more »
  • Its kind of strange to enter this place as its in the heart of the Miraflores district and you are always aware of the city going on around you. It does provide a nice break from the hustle and bustle...  more »
  • Worth visiting if you are within walking distance. Example of Pre-Incan structure with a tiny one room museum with artifacts found on-site. Includes some examples of mummies.  more »

  • 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.
  • Although it lacks of a guide, it is a huge like pyramid structure, it is more amazing when you realize it is made with Adobe (a brick made of mud). It has a really tiny site museum, and the entrance fee is really cheap
