Huaca Pucllana

Let's go travelling for a short while?

The visit to the ‘Huaca Pucllana’, located in the district of Miraflores in Lima, means an authentic journey to the past towards the fourth century AD, when the settlers of the coastal grounds built this pyramid with its respective rooms, mazes and close terraces. At first sight it seems like a gigantic architectural library because they built the walls as if they were made up of thousands of adobe books. Apparently, this ceremonial area was central to ancestral rituals including human sacrifices and torn vessels as gifts to the gods. The museum of the place has recreated a true scale of some of the customs of this colony and exhibits the ceramics and objects which were found during the excavations. During your visit, you will also be able to see the work of the archaeologists who are still investigating this site in order to find out more about this civilization.
