Huaca Huallamarca is a massive adobe brick pyramid built during the pre-Columbian Maranga period around 500 AD. It is the most impressive archaeological site in the city and not to be missed. It can seem a little bit too perfect though as it has been very thoroughly restored. The crumbling Huaca Pucllana seems a bit more authentic.

You can climb a ramp to the top of the pyramid, from which you get a great view of the wealthy San Isidro district.

Opening hours: Tue-Sun 9am-5pm.

Admission: S/. 5.60.

Address: Nicolas Rivera 201, San Isidro, Lima
Directions: Huaca Huallamarca is in the San Isidro district just west of Miraflores.
Phone: %cb222 4124%c*

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
