Then, you will continue to the main square, and the Bridge of Sighs, when you are going to appreciate the pathway known as Bajada de Baños (Lowered of the baths), a stone road that leads to the beaches of the city.

Next, you will visit the Archaeological Sanctuary of Pachacamac, just 30 km south of Lima. It was built in adobe with a view of the sea and the Lurin river valley. It was a pilgrimage site for many cultures that developed in ancient Peru. The first civilizations dated back to 5000 B.C. Upon the arrival of the Incas, the complex was adapted to become an administrative center, respecting and adapting the local constructions.

Pachacamac has three important sectors: the administrative part, where you can find the Acllahuasi, the Palace of Tauri Chumpi, and the Pilgrimage Plaza. The religious part with many temples as the Temple of the Sun and the Moon, and by last, the domestic zone. You will also visit the Site Museum of Pachacamac to get a better insight and appreciate the salvaged remnants of the area.

The district of Barranco was a fishermen neighborhood, and its beaches were very popular for the upper-middle-class of Lima, where they built European-style ranches and mansions. The Temple of the Sun was built by the Incas when they arrive at the coast of Lima in 1470, and it is the highest part of the complex, with sea orientation. It was built with adobes with red colors and it is the biggest temple on the Peruvian coast. At the end of the excursion, you will return to your hotel.
