We visited Huaca Pucllana to gain a better understanding of Pre-Incan civilizations. This is definitely worth a visit. The site itself is massive and what remains is only a fraction of what it used to be. Because modern day Peru did not necessarily realize these...More

Although not the most famous site in Peru, I found it very interesting. Cool to learn about the different civilizations. Since it wasn't Incan, the style and culture is different than other ruins. You can only enter the ruins through a guided tour, but I...More

Really cool to see and learn the history. It's a good place to go if you're just walking around the city exploring but I wouldn't make it a high priority if your time is really limited.

Amazing pre Incan ruins, right in the heart of the tourist district of Miraflores. Tours run in both English and Spanish, and take you all around and up on top of the ruins themselves. Conservation efforts are ongoing, and the entrance fee goes towards further...More

You can have an English speaking guide, but often need to wait 30 min - 1 hour if you are not in a group. The ruins are being restored and it is getting better year by year.

I probably would not go to Huaca Pucllana at night. It is in a neighborhood away from the hotels. I felt completely safe in Miraflores at night and in Cusco and in Aguas calientes.
