Temple of Pachacamac Half-Day Tour from Lima

Temple of Pachacamac Half-Day Tour from Lima

Leaving Lima behind, you'll enjoy a scenic coastal drive along the Pan-American highway. Only 19 miles (30km) south of Lima lies this impressive and well preserved religious compound.

The massive Temples of the Sun and the Moon are known to be the compound's most striking features. Built entirely of clay, an estimated 50 million sun-dried bricks were used in the construction of the Temple of the Sun alone. Excavations in the area continue to reveal further insights into the Moche and Huari cultures that spanned the period from 200 to 800 AD.

i enjoyed this tour. the guide was informative, kind and attentive, speaking in spanish and then english. there was a lot of traffic leaving Lima, but i found it fascinating to see the neighborhoods of Barrnaca. the bus had a flat tire so we did a tad more walking to the temples at the site. i found this to be a benefit! however, free tickets for a night tour were given as compensation. the view of the ocean from the higher terraces, amazing and not to be missed! highly recommend!

I'm really glad that we took this trip while we were in Lima. Pachacamac is an incredible archaeological site, and we had a great time exploring it. Our guide, Elizabeth, spoke wonderful English and Spanish and was able to engage with the whole group and answer questions. Highly recommended.
