We walked here from our hotel in 30 mins. It is a partially excavated site of the Lima tribe. A full pyramid and great guided tour included in the admission. It takes about an hour to go round.

A must see landmark ruins in Lima. Spectacular at night all lit up and stunning during the day. Dinner at the ruins was ok, but it was all about the ruins.
