Temple of Pachacamac Half-Day Tour from Lima

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 39.00
2 travellers
Join a half-day tour to the famous Pachacamac Temple, located only a short distance from Lima. Built by different leaders throughout the centuries and between the years 200 and 1450 AD, this religious compound is made entirely out of clay and houses the giant pyramids of the sun and moon. This comprehensive sightseeing tour will give you an insight on the culture, history and architecture of both the Inca and pre-Inca people.
  • Tour the Pachacamac archaeological site with a guide—entrance fees included
  • Explore the compound’s key sites like the Sun Temple and the Moon Temple
  • Discover ancient murals depicting life for Moche and Huari civilizations
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from Miraflores or San Isidro in Lima
What to Expect
Begin your half-day tour with a morning pickup at your accommodation in the Miraflores or San Isidro neighborhood of Lima. Board your air-conditioned minivan and, with your guide sharing history and information along the way, take the scenic coastal route to Pachacamac, a perfectly preserved religious compound with evidence of human habitation dating back to AD 200. On arrival at Pachacamac, explore the archaeological site and admire the Sun Temple, Moon Temple, and other features. Learn how 50 million sundried bricks were used in the temples’ construction, admire colorful murals uncovered by archaeologists over the years, gain insight into life in this part of the world thousands of years ago, and hear about the ancient Moche and Huari people who once called Pachacamac home. After your in-depth tour of the Pachacamac temple complex, return in comfort to your starting point in Lima, where your tour ends.

Very interesting exhibits at the museum but the lighting is off so everything has a glare on the picture. The ruins are fascinating and provide a great view of the ocean at the top.More

Most tour companies will pick up guests from hotels in Miraflores, not sure they will go to an AirBNB, you may have to meet them at a hotel near your place of stay.
