Pachacamac was believed by the ancient Incans to be the creator of the universe, and his temple was considered a sacred, ceremonial site, part of the Earth's mystical axis.Thousands of pilgrims traveled here to pay tribute during the early days of Christianity. Visit the Temple of Pachacamac and the Sun God shrine; you'll then visit either the Palace of the Chosen Women or Virgins of the Sun.
Begin with stops at sites dating back to the pre-Inca cultures, including Huaca Pucllana, a pyramidal structure built during the fourth century. Then wander among the stunning buildings and sites from the Colonial era, when Lima was the capital city and an important stronghold: Plaza San Martin, Plaza Mayor, Palacio de Gobierno, Palacio Arzobispal, the Basilica Catedral, and many more. Then pay a visit to the Convento de San Francisco, whose collection of religious art is the largest in the Americas.
Afterwards, enter the more traditional sections of the city, with stops at the Olive Grove of San Isidro, Miraflores, and Larco Mar. The tour concludes with a buffet-style lunch at the Junius restaurant.
