Overview

Drive 30 minutes southeast of Lima to visit the Pachacamac Pilgrimage Center. Built around 700 A.D. as a temple for the worship of the sun god, Pachacamac, it housed an oracle that is believed to be one of the main pilgrimage centres in pre-Columbian Peru, and on a par with Cusco. Pilgrims flocked here from far away to worship Pachacamac, who was believed to be the creator of the world and its creatures.

The site includes palaces, plazas and temples that have been painstakingly restored. The on-site museum has a collection of local relics. Conclude the tour with a visit to the Larco Herrera Museum, housed in an 18th century colonial mansion that hosts the most extensive collection of pre-Columbian art in Peru. It contains fine examples of textile work, one of which has a world record-breaking 398 threads per inch, as well as the tools ancient Peruvians used to produce metals, huaco ceramics and gold and silver pieces with semiprecious stones.
