This won't take too much time off your trip but it is very interesting. There is a very small museum on the side. There are no tours but everything had signs in english and Spanish. We truly enjoyed it!

Its kind of strange to enter this place as its in the heart of the Miraflores district and you are always aware of the city going on around you. It does provide a nice break from the hustle and bustle though. The entry ticket includes a guided tour which as far as I could work out are only done in... More

Worth visiting if you are within walking distance. Example of Pre-Incan structure with a tiny one room museum with artifacts found on-site. Includes some examples of mummies.

It was nice seeing a bit of the original culture in the city. It is very hot in Lima so climbing up can be extenuating, but it's cool to see what the archaeologists have found and understanding the customs of old civilizations.

It's a smaller archaeological site with a simple exhibit. While it's a humbler site, it's significance is still impressive.

When in Lima, do not miss the very old historic ruins inside San Isidro district! This is really old, where old inca civilization built a place where they used to store food and later for burials! This a must to go, you can do walking in case your hotel is in San Isidro region . Get a good pair of... More

I had read about this pyramid before coming to Lima so requested a tour with our itinerary. Our guide for the day, Carla, from Condor Travel took us there, with our driver, Willy, after touring the Larco Museum. It is a small museum but saw some of the mummies that were found. I won't go into the history as others... More

Surrounded by some of the most prominent Lima residences including this of various Foreign Ambassadors sits the 4 story mud pyramid built in the period beginning 200 BB by the Lima people. It was used by them until 700 AD when the Lima were conquered by the Wari. Today it houses a museum which is fairly interested. Open Tuesday to... More

Wow, where else can an archaeological site in the middle of town? A huge mound of earth on an otherwise flat plain, that was a fav haunt of motocross bike riders, was excavated to reveal a pre-Incan pyramid temple made from adobe bricks, along with walls around the base of the temple that delineated rooms for brick making, kitchens and...
