Pachacámac - Ruin Lima - Peru

Roughly 31 kilometers (19 miles) south of Lima you will find the ancient city of Pachacámac. Begun in 200 A.D., Pachacámac was expanded by the Wari tribe and then incorporated into the Inca empire. It’s the closest major archeological site to Lima. Major buildings include the Templo del Sol (Temple of the Sun) and Palacio de Mamacuña (House of the Chosen Women). The site has a very interesting mix of architecture styles.
