PACHACAMAC + PARACAS
Pachacamac and Paracas full day
Our full day tour start with the visit to Pachacamac, which is the most important Incas administrative and religious center in the coast.
It is located near Lima, at 19.26 miles (31 km). Pachacamac is an archaeological enclosure whose constructions conserve the mysticism and religiosity of their past.
When traveling this sanctuary, where hundred of years ago the natives surrendered cult to the sun and to the Earth, one can feel the magic attraction of a place that will always be sacred, The investigations presume that this place was inhabited since the year 200 up to 1533.
From the Pre-Inca constructions stand out the "Templo Pintado" (colored temple) and the "Templo Viejo" (old temple), built with small adobes and pyramids with ramps.
After the Inca conquest they built next to them the "Templo del Inti" (Temple of sun) and an "acllahuasi" house prepared for the chosen girls.
The Temple of Inti has a flight of stairs made of stones and passages that go along the edge of the main structure, built with adobes. On him a great terrace exists with view to the sea, and is related with the islands in front of this group with an old legend. Then our second stop is the Paracas Peninsula, located at 220 kms from the south of Lima. It is a nature reserve and a major archeological site as well.
We will have our excursion to the Paracas Reserve of about 2 1/2 hours. Paracas is one of the best marine reserves, with the highest concentration of marine birds, we will enter in contact with the nature of Paracas National Reserve where you will see the natural rocky formations, sea birds and the most impresive desert in contrast with the ocean. At the end of the service private transfer to Lima, arriving around 7:00pm (Lunch).
