Dinner at the restaurant on site at the historical pre-Inca city was excellent. The service and meals were very good, sitting out on the veranda with a direct view of the ruins and historically correct reconstruction.

This is a lovely ruin in the middle of Miraflores - pyramid made out of clay and adobe. Built between 200-700 ad by the Wari culture. Not a huge site but doable in two hours. Beautiful platforms.

One of the few ancient ruins still left in Lima. Conveniently located near Miraflores and very cheap admission. Best to go in with a guide to really make the most of it
