The climb to the top had amazing views of the cityscape, plus a little Incan museum near the base. It was a great fun little trip while on our tour of Lima.

Located in the midst of a bustling city, I admire the government officials who conserve archaeological sites such as this and Huaca Pucllana. It's a small archaeological site but still rich in history. I also saw a couple of Peruvian hairless dogs, such sweeties.
