If you have a spare hour in Lima, specifically in Miraflores, it is worth to visit Huaca Pucllana, the site of the pre-Inka adobe and clay pyramid. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and a sunhat. Join to a tour as the guides can share lots of historical information.

The guides were knowledgeable and had a lot of historical information. Sometimes the human sacrifice part seemed over done, but great info about the lifestyles and attitudes of people in that era.

To be honest, I wasn't exepcting much of this site. But I was pleasently surprised upon arrival: the site was big, there was a guided tour included with the ticket price and I learned a lot about pre- Inca civilizations. I definetely recommend it!

If you are on the way to, or have returned from Machu Picchu and are keen to understand a little more about the pre Inca and Inca periods this is a suprising 'must see'.

Lima is a big modern city and I was very surprised to visit a place like this inside the city. It depends what you like, but I think this is a very unique place you probably can not find at the other place, so I think it deserved to pay a visit. It is not a huge place, all visitors... More
