Built by millions of adobe bricks, these ruins once served as an administrative center and a pre-Inca ceremonial site dedicated to the God Pachacamac.

The site is in easy walking distance from anywhere in Miraflores. We visited independently in the afternoon and enjoyed the tour that lasted for an hour. Worth a visit and the entry is not expensive.

Nothing really to see, similar Huacas can be found all over Lima and you don't even have to pay for a tour. Not worth the price IMO.

As part of a guided tour of Lima we were shown this site from the outside. Subsequently, we decided to return to visit it in more detail. It is extremely impressive in size and amazing to think that it was being used as a moto...More

I loved being able to walk around this place and learn a lot about its history. Our guide seemed very knowledgeable. At night you are not allowed to climb the pyramid, but I thought the view made up for it.

This site is just a small part of the history of Peru that is not Incan. It is remarkable that unfired mud bricks can stand the ravages of time so well. Combine it with a trip to the Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History.

This was a nice stop while visiting Lima. We happened to stumble across this site while walking around and went in for a quick visit. They had tour guides on standby and we only had to wait about 20 minutes for our English speaking tour...More

Great value visit which included an excellent guide ( groups taken by language spoken). Lots of staff and at just over 1 hour for the tour it was a good use of an afternoon. Lots of restoration work still going on.

This place is a museum, which I didn't go inside, and a pyramid on the outside which you can walk up and take pics. I wouldn't call it a must see unless your really into archeology.

Historical site of ancient cemetery. A very basic attraction with explanatory and extracted mummy, could have been better if they can show more.

Our first day in MiaFlores and we needed some low key things to do. Huaca Pucllana was a 15 minute walk from our Hotel. When we arrived an English tour was about to start. It lasted about 1/2 hour and gave us a great overview...More

I probably would not go to Huaca Pucllana at night. It is in a neighborhood away from the hotels. I felt completely safe in Miraflores at night and in Cusco and in Aguas calientes.
