this site is huge in the heart of the city and is still being uncovered to this day. You need a guide or book to tell you about the history of the sacrifices etc.

If you have a few days in Lima and are close to the site take the time to visit. Miraflores is very close to this site

Tours are done in English and the guide we had was fluent

The ruins are the only ones in a modern major city in Peru and give an insight into life prior to the Spanish arrival/invasion depending on what side of history suits. It also gives an indicator of what farmIng and building methods were used along with religious ceremonies

Give yourself 2 hours as a small wait for a guide can be expected

Cost around $6US is fairly cheap entertainment

Enjoy

Until the 1980s this was thought to be just a hill, with donkey races and kids bicycling on it. Then when some building projects were starting the pyramid and the adjacent areas was discovered. There are houses all around sitting on parts of the one time center for the "Lima People" and the subsequent groups that followed - Wari culture. You have to go with a tour guide, but it is necessary or you would not know what you were seeing. The whole site is made up of mud brick placed vertically creating walls that could move during the frequent earthquakes. The site has a beautiful restaurant and at night the whole area is lit up. The restaurant faces the site with a completely open side for viewing.
