Ancestral shrines
Now part of the modern Lima neighborhoods of San Isidro and Miraflores, the Pucllana temple was built in the fourth century A.D. as an ancestral and ceremonial site dedicated to the local divinities. A typical pyramid, Huacllamarca shrine is a perfect characterization of the sacred buildings on Peruís coast.

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.

Known for its Bridge of Sighs, Barranco is a neighborhood thatís home to both the traditional and the bohemian. After wandering the neighborhood, explore the beaches along the Green Coast, the Friarís Leap ledge over the ocean, and the Ecological Reserve at the Villa marshes—with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean along the South Pan-American Highway.
