  • Is a legal construction in the middle of the city, but nothing like the Huaca Pucllana. If you have days left in Lima, is a good visit, but otherwise there are options more interesting to visit.

  • This site is a gem in the city center. Information in Spanish and English. For a few soles you can soak it all in and you do not need to pay $40 bucks for a tour.  more »

  • 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.
