Pachacamac is the most important archaeological site in coastal Peru and consists of more than 20 pyramids. It was the main sanctuary of the Andean coast for more than 1500 years.
In Pachacamac your guide will show you around temples from different pre-colonial civilizations and you'll also get to visit the brand new Pachacamac museum, where you'll discover the history and artifacts of the different cultures that used to occupy this sanctuary.

Afterwards you'll head to a neighborhood close-by that houses many artisans from Ayacucho, who fled the violence of the Shining Path during the 80's & 90's which you will hear more about during your visit. In this neighborhood local artisans continue to make the traditional handicrafts and artwork from Ayacucho.

You’ll first have lunch with a charming local family in their house and share some life stories and conversations. In this neighborhood, local artisans continue to make the traditional handicrafts and artworks from Ayacucho. With a full stomach, you’ll visit workshops where they make textiles, ceramics and learn about the techniques behind their crafts and support their traditional livelihoods.
In a place where the government is mostly absent, these people have built their own community and are developing and maintaining the local economy with their art, you’ll leave this place inspired!
