Half-Day Private Tour to Huaca Pucllana and Huaca Mateo Salado
Start a tour of two of the most famous "Huacas", (ceremonial centres or temples) of Lima. First, you will visit Huaca Pucllana in the district of Miraflores, formed by a 25-meter high truncated pyramid of adobe and a set of patios and plazas. Also, the complex has an exhibition room and a restaurant. Then, you will be transferred to Huaca Mateo Salado in the district of Pueblo Libre. This is one of the most important ¨huacas¨ in Lima due to its connection with the Qhapaq Ñan, the Great Inca Trail that united the entire empire. Initially Mateo Salado was a Yschma civilization administrative-ceremonial centre, but then it was occupied by the Incas, being they who enabled the section that united this ¨huaca¨ with Pachacamac, south of Lima. Finally, you will be transferred back to your hotel.Itinerary

The Huaca Mateo Salado was an administrative and religious center of the Ychsma culture, its construction beginning in 1100 AD. Their occupation continued with the Incas, who changed their architecture and included it in the Andean road system known as Qhapaq Ñan. After the arrival of the Europeans in 1532, the archaeological complex suffered many depredations until it almost disappeared in the 20th century. Due to its importance, in 2001 it was declared a Cultural Heritage of the Nation.
