Huaca Pucllana was just a short walking distance from the Airbnb we were staying at in Miraflores. It's pretty much smack in the middle of a neighborhood. The site provides English speaking tour guides who are very knowledgeable about the history of the site as well as the city. It was inexpensive to get in-there is a little bit of... More

It's kind of surprise you've walking through a residential area of Miraflores and there it is a mass of Adobe. Reasonably priced and yes you can see some from the outside but it's worth the few soles to go in and get a tour.

It is a good place to start your visit to Lima as it gives you the history of the pre-Columbian people who build this site. The tour, available in English or Spanish is very informative and very good value. There is a small museum with some interesting artifacts.

A fascinating place but a very bored, lack-luster tour guide took away from the experience. It was neat walking around the ancient temple and seeing how they built it. In order to really learn about it, I had to go back home and look it up online.

Lets see, in a classical enviroment you have this restaurant. Seems is well know in Lima. on the background you also have some ruins. Food was good, attention very slow. Maybe because was busy busy. Was a weekend. Place to visit .

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour through these ruins in Miraflores. It's really cheap as well and our guide was really good, pointing out sections with original stones that are over 1,500 years old. We found Huaca Pucclana the most interesting thing to do in Miraflores, so very glad we went.

This site was an interesting discovery as the city was being built/excavated. We went on a day when it was closed and I do not think we missed much by just viewing it from the outside.

Interesting ruins within walking distance of most Miraflores hotels. You tour the site with a guide, offered in either English or Spanish on the day I was there. Tour lasts about an hour. There is no shade at all, so prepare accordingly. There is a restaurant on the site also overlooking the ruins, and it's my understanding that if you... More

We toured the ruins here and came away absolutely amazed with what we saw. There are bricks there that are 1500 years old! It's amazing to walk around the complex and to the top of the pyramid-like structures and imagine what it must have been like 1500 years ago! Certainly educational for our kids and very informative for us!
