About the tour

Travel back in time to the pre-hispanic era to see a different Lima, when this city was a fertile valley and had majestic pyramids made of mud bricks everywhere. Climb with me to the top of one of those pyramids to understand the reasons to built such way and the uses given to those constructions in the past, also learn the story behind the “European” name of this place... unveil these and many other mysteries of this site with me in this tour that is part of my archaeological series of Lima. Let's start!
