Pachacamac, Lima

(4/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Walk through the remains of an important Inca settlement that thrived for more than 1,300 years at Pachacamac, an archaeological site a short drive southeast of Lima. Originally dedicated to Pacha Kamaq, the Inca god believed to have created the Earth, the site remains a work in progress, with archaeological digs and restoration projects expected to continue for years. Once the restorations are completed, the ruins are expected to look significantly more impressive to visitors. Climb to the ruined settlement's centerpiece, a sun temple offering sweeping view over the sea. Plan to visit Pachacamac during your Lima vacation using our convenient Lima trip itinerary planner.

  • Complex is large, constructions are in a State of preservation medium, there are rebuilt parts which give a very good idea of as it was originally, what I didn't like is that the trail where you can go this far from constructions

  • Visit guided not, without transportation within the resort making quite inconvenient ruins due to the heat of certain time of the year as April, guide there is what makes it quite uninformed despite the Museum which is located at the entrance of the site.
