Just an hour south of Peru’s capital Lima lies an archaeological complex of imposing pyramids and temples that until now still retains the mysticism and religiosity of its past. This is the citadel of Pachacamac – join us on a Tour Pachacamac and discover for yourself its beauty!
On this tour, you will visit the temple known as the Acllahuasi, where the “chosen ones” by the Sun God used to live. Besides that, visit other temples such as the Painted Temple, the Palace of Taurichumbi and the Temple of the Sun amongst others. Step on the sacred ground where thousands of pilgrims used to present their offerings to the oracle of Pachacamac – the God who was known to be able to look at the past, into the future and decide one’s destiny. It was also at this place where the Inca tribe established one of the main administrative and religious centers of their empire.
Besides visiting the citadel of Pachacamac, you will also take this opportunity to explore the districts of Barranco and Chorrillos in Lima. Beginning this part of the tour in the traditional district of Barranco, you will see attractions such as Central Park, the Bajada de los Baños, the Old Library, the “ranchos” or colonial mansions, the traditional Barranco’s Bridge of Sighs and its famous Boulevard that is the most bohemian expression of nightlife in Lima.
Besides Barranco, you will also visit the district of Chorrillos, which was once the most famous bathing spot of Lima. Today, this district houses the only natural reserve area of the city, the Pantanos de Villa, which you will also be able to see.
