I would highly recommend having a cocktail to view the beautifully lit ruins at night. While I did not have dinner, we did indulge in a cocktail. While drinks itself were not so memorable, the view was what drew us into the restaurant. I would recommend it.

Why it's great? So you can learn a bit that pre-hispanic period isn't only about the Incas!

There're only guided visit: it's not possible to visit the place by yourself (tours in English and Spanish). BUT, it's not a problem: the guide is just a nice way to know a little bit more about the pre-hispanic or even pre-inca settlements that once lived in Peru. :)

And, it's great to see that big construction right in the middle of the city, and the efforts to preserve and study it! I believe there's so much to discover in only this single place :)

If you have some time left in Lima, you should visit it. The tour (in English) lasts an hour and you learn a lot, even you receive information about animals and plants they had in earlier times. I will go back next time and I will look at the progress of the excavations.

The tour lasts for an hour and the entrance fee is 12sol or 5USD. We had a English tour, and she first introduced some original fruit trees, vegetables, and the animals, like alpaca and guinea pigs. According to her, there were white, brown and green cottons, but the green ones are extinction. The ruins are magnificent, and the bricks are 90% original (made by seashell and dirt). We enjoy seeing how the ancient people live and their activities.
