What you'll do

We start at Miraflores district, where we depart for Pachacamac located in the southern limit of Metropolitan Lima, place revered for 1500 years as a recognized Oracle and main religious center, conserving 27 truncated mud pyramids, among them the Temple of the Sun of the Incas. At the end of the tour, we return north to see the fusion of flavors present in the local cuisine, enjoying a buffet lunch in front of the sea in the traditional district of Chorrillos. The second part of the tour will begin with a visit to the Bohemian district of Barranco, visiting a couple of local galleries specialized in folk art and crafts; then in our minibus, we continue in direction to the Km. 0 of the city, capital of Nueva Castilla located at the Plaza Mayor of Lima, evidence of the mixture of Catholicism with the local culture present in the art of the colonial period. We will visit an old mansion of 1535 considered cultural heritage and where the original family still lives, the Museum of the Reserve Bank and we will end the day in the magic circuit of the waters with the light show in this park winner of record guines.
