Temple Of Pachacamac

The Temple of Pachacamac is an archaeological site located 40km (25 miles) SE of Lima, and predates the Inca by several hundred years. Inca construction is visible however as they were the last to inhabit Pachacamac. The site is impressive, but being made of adobe, it is not as lavish as the stone sites in and around Cusco. There are many other Huaca’s (adobe structures and pyramids) scattered around Lima.
Located near the entrance are a museum, and where a guide may be hired. The tour lasts over three hours at the site, with approximately a half-day in total. Book your tour in Lima with a tour agency, and transportation and a guide is provided or public transportation can be taken directly to Pachacamac.
