This is a very interesting archaeological site. The guided tour is very informative and is a nice way to get to know more about the ruins and the pre-Inca cultures that inhabited Lima. The location is a plus, since it's right in the middle of the Miraflores district (most of the other sites are located far from the most tourist... More

The tour is interesting and the tour guide was friendly and knowledgable. The tour took just under an hour. The museum itself is tiny and apart from the guided tour there is nothing else to see at the site. An interesting and fairly inexpensive way to spend an hour if you have the time and are interested in Lima's history.

I'm giving this five stars not only for the ruins, but for the restaurant on the grounds, where I ate diner. If you have diner in one place in Lima, go here at night. It is surreal and spectacular.

The food is good and the ambiance is very pretty, especially at night. The service is a bit slow. Recommend for a first taste of Peru

These ruins were within walking distance of the apartment I was stay at so I decided to go. It was very fascinating to see ruins literally in the middle of Miraflores! The tour was nice, but a little borning and fast. There was a random enclosure with Llamas, Alpacas and guinea pigs towards the back of the ruins. The guide... More

Worth visiting is you have time, historic area totally encompassed by the city. An active archaeological site, still much for them to learn about the site. The accompanying restaurant was very good.

Interesting ruins right in Miraflores, just discovered in 1981. Easy walk to top of pyramid, around site.

These mud-brick ruins are in the heart of the Pucllana area of Miraflores, Lima. Very accessible and interesting. There are many more elaborate ruins throughout Peru, but this is a nice one that allows you to get up close to ancient and partially reconstructed walls that are all pre-Inca. Worth a couple hours to roam and visit. The tiny museum... More

Food lovely. Service good but not personal. Shame as restaurant is on ancient ruins which we only saw from a far. Felt like a conveyor belt... Ship them in.... Feed them and ship them out
