    Protected area and managed by District of Lima, the swamps of the Village are located practically in the urban area, right in the path that leads to the archaeological site of Pachacamac and is not exactly a tourist attraction, as it is only a great bathed with a lot of native vegetation and which is used as environmental and forest reserve and conservation Park that serves as the great variety of animals and migratory birds and native flora , being a visitation interesting for who is a biologist or has affinity in the business.
