The North Coast and Northern Highlands Sights

Updated 09/19/2012

Fodor's Review

North of the city is a small archaeological site called Wilcahuaín. The Wari temple, dating back to AD 1100, resembles the larger temple at Chavín de Huántar. Each story of the crumbling three-tiered temple has seven rooms. There's a small museum and recently built basic bathroom facilities and a limited restaurant. Trained and knowledgeable local students will be your guide for a small tip (suggested minimum tip: S/15).
