180 kilometres separate Lima from this archaeological wonder that has become a World Heritage Site. An interesting excursion.
An archaeological site.
One of the most amazing archaeological sites that you can visit in Peru is located at 180 kilometres from Lima: 'La Ciudad Sagrada de Caral', declared as an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009. It's believed that their society - 5,000 BC – were living at the same time as civilizations such as the Egyptians and Mesopotamians and like those, organized by a system of sacred lineages. One of the curiosities of the Caral civilization was their interest in music, as shown by the instruments made with bones. To visit this site, you can contact the same team of archaeologists who work there and offer a tourist service, leaving from the 'Museo de la Nación' (The National Museum) in Lima to Caral. Transport, lunch and a guided tour included for 95 'soles' (Peruvian currency). The outings which may be reserved prior to departure are available on Saturdays and Sundays at 7.00 am and return to Lima at 8.30 pm.
