Pachacamac

The Incan archaeological site of Pachacamac is a former citadel sitting about 31 kilometers (19 miles) from the city center. While it can appear to be little more than a whole lot of sand and dust in parts, excavations have revealed a few of the main temples among the rubble. From the top of the Sun Temple (Templo del Sol), expansive views encompass Lima and the coast; and the Palacio de Las Mamacuna (House of the Chosen Women) features remarkable Inca-style trapezoidal doorways.
