Fodor's Review

Rising out of a nondescript residential neighborhood is this massive, mud-brick temple. You'll be amazed at the scale—this pre-Inca huaca, or temple, covers several city blocks. The site, which dates back to at least the fourth century, has ongoing excavations, and new discoveries are often announced. A tiny museum highlights some of the finds. Knowledgeable guides, some of whom speak English, will lead you around and over the pyramid to the area that is being

excavated. This site is most beautiful at night, when partial tours can be arranged through the adjacent Huaca Pucllana restaurant if you dine there.
