Trip Planner: South America / Peru / Lima Region / Lima / Site Museum and Archaeological Sanctuary of Pachacamac
Walk through the remains of an important Inca settlement that thrived for more than 1,300 years at Site Museum and Archaeological Sanctuary of Pachacamac, an archaeological site a short drive southeast of Lima. Originally dedicated to Pacha Kamaq, the Inca god believed to have created the Earth, the site remains a work in progress, with archaeological digs and restoration projects expected to continue for years. Once the restorations are completed, the ruins are expected to look significantly more impressive to visitors. Climb to the ruined settlement's centerpiece, a sun temple offering sweeping view over the sea.

Went with Monica Tours and she and Lily made it come alive! Excavations still happening, fascinating. This is out of Lima proper and a local guide is very helpful. more »
These are the Pre Inka ruins.Pachacamac was a center of prayer and worshipping. The history of this place is very interesting.The museum is very detailed and they have interpreters and guides for the tour at a very reasonable price.There is plenty parking,clean restrooms,a nice shop and a coffee shop or a place that you can get non alcoholic drink.It is extremely hot,sun protective lotion and clothing is recommended.You will not regret to visit this place.EVEN my grandchildren were impressed and want to go back.
This site is so beautiful because it describes a part of our history, and our culture.
