About the tour

Located in the east border of the city, where the desert meets the foothills of the Andes, we find this hidden gem of Lima, an impressive archaeological site dated back almost 1000 years ago, built by the Ichma society, and used by the Incas as one of the administrative centers located in the valley of Rimac river. If you love archaeology, and history is your passion come on this tour and discover this site with me.

How wonderful it was to have a private tour through Puruchuco. Thank you Vanessa for highlighting the variations of architecture between the Ica and Inca civilisations - fascinating walk through history.

I thought Vanessa came over very well, enthusiastic and friendly and she clearly.has a good local knowledge. I thought the object of the tour was rather bland visually and it would have been good to have history of people that lived there but I assume no records exist. This would have made the tour so much better.
