A record figure that is expected to be surpassed when the activity of the tourism sector resumes, one of the sectors most affected by the current situation in our country and the world.
Huaca Pucllana Ruins
Guided tours to the Huaca Pucllana Ruins begin by exploring the lower parts of the pyramid where you can see vessels and vestiges of ancient squares of the ancient settlers of Lima.
In some part of the route, a model shows, beyond the limits of the current archaeological site, a representation of spaces and the way how the Lima culture worked.
Part of the City tour in Lima shows us the typical flora and fauna of the pre-Hispanic era, where you can see the friendly llamas.
The main attraction is the 7-level truncated pyramid of the Huaca Pucllana Ruins, which was built with “adobitos”, rectangular clay bricks dried in the sun. At the top of the pyramid, it is interesting to see the contrast of the ruins with the modern buildings and houses in the streets that surround the Huaca Pucllana Ruins.
