Details of Day Tours


After picking you up from your hotel in the city of Lima, we will start an incredible experience visiting archaeological sites located within the city.

 

Our first destination is the iconic Huaca Pucllana, located in the heart of Miraflores. There, you will be amazed by the imposing truncated adobe pyramid, which rises majestically to a height of 25 meters. Explore the enigmatic courtyards and squares of this archaeological complex while awakening your imagination with each step you take. Additionally, let yourself be captivated by the intriguing exhibition hall that will reveal well-guarded secrets.

 

The Huaca Pucllana archaeological site has its roots in the Lima culture, an ancient civilization that flourished on the central coast of Peru between 200 and 700 A.D. This archaeological structure was built as a ceremonial and administrative center, and its importance lies in being a tangible legacy of the pre-Columbian history of the region.

 

It was discovered in the 1980s during urbanization works in the city of Lima. Since then, excavation and restoration efforts have been carried out to preserve this important archaeological site.

 

After this cultural immersion, we will move to the Mateo Salado archaeological complex, located in the picturesque district of Pueblo Libre. This archaeological gem occupies a prominent place in the history of Lima, thanks to its connection with the legendary Qhapaq Ñan, also known as the Inca Trail that connected the entire Empire.

 

This ancient structure, approximately 1,400 years old, was built by the ancient Lima people during the Middle Horizon period, between 600 and 900 A.D.

 

Discover the origins of Mateo Salado as an administrative-ceremonial center of the Ychsma culture, and be amazed to learn that the Incas, with their ingenuity, reused it to connect this huaca with the iconic Pachacamac, south of Lima.

 

The Mateo Salado complex consists of a truncated pyramid and a ceremonial plaza, surrounded by various auxiliary structures. Archaeologists have discovered that the main pyramid was covered in adobe and adorned with reliefs and mural paintings depicting human figures, animals, and deities related to Lima mythology.

 

To conclude this journey through time, we will transport you back to your hotel, ensuring that your experience is unforgettable from beginning to end.
