DESCRIPTION OF THE ALTERNATE VISIT TO THE ANCESTRAL SHRINES AND PACHACAMAC’S SACRED SITE
A unique archaeological and mystical experience: The Oracle, Temples, Palaces, Myths and Legends. Our tour will start at the Pucllana temple built in the IV century A.D., an ancestral and ceremonial site dedicated to the local divinities. A panoramic view of the Huacllamarca shrine, a typical pyramid that characterizes sacred buildings on Peru’s coast. These shrines are located in the modern Lima neighborhoods of San Isidro and Miraflores. Next, a guided tour of the splendid and vast archaeological citadel of Pachacamac, the temple of the deity Pachacamac, believed to be the creator of the universe and a divinity adored by old Andean civilizations. A sacred and ceremonial site dating back to the beginnings of Christianity where thousands of pilgrims converged to pay tribute and consult the Pachacamac oracle, who they believed could see the past, the future and people’s fate. The site comprises pyramidal temples and enclosures built by successive pre-Colombian civilizations and finally the Incas. Highlights include the Temple of Pachacamac, the Sun God shrine, and the Palace of the Chosen Women or Virgins of the Sun. At the site museum there is an idol of the deity, Pachacamac, which couldn’t be seen by the profane, and was reserved for the high priests who kept, revered and interpreted the divine oracle in the old times. A sacred site, the temple was considered to be part of the planet’s mystical axis.

Afternoon Gold Museum Tour
See Peru’s most famous gold collection. A spectacular collection of Peruvian Ancient Gold and the Arms of the World Collection. This tour also includes a visit to Friendship Park. On our tour of Peru’s Gold Museum, visitors will appreciate a dazzling collection of gold artifacts from various pre-Colombian civilizations, some more than 3,000 years old. Ancient Peruvians were master metalworkers. The “cire perdue” or lost wax process, known across the Orient and lost in the West until the Renaissance, was the most frequent technique used by master ancient Peruvian gold and silversmiths. Metal pieces and jewels of incalculable value in gold, silver and precious stones used by the Incas—the children of the Sun God and monarchs of the vast Inca Empire—are shown in this collection. Five hundred years ago, the gold of Peru attracted many European adventurers who conquered the Inca and founded the Vice-Royalty of Peru under the Spanish Crown. Peru’s Gold Museum also houses a valuable collection of old and modern weapons that ranks among the best in the world. The halls in this section show the Arms of the World Collection of armour, uniforms and various ancient war artifacts and weapons from various time periods around the world, some dating back to as long ago as 1300 B.C.
