We flew to Lima Peru from La Paz Bolivia at that morning.
After lunch, we are going to the pyramid of Huaca Huallamarca in the San Isidro District.
Miraflores District is an exclusive residential and upscale shopping district south of downtown Lima. It is also one of the most affluent districts that make up the city of Lima.
Huaca Huallamarca is an archaeological site, located in the district of San Isidro, in the city of Lima.
PREHISPAIC HUALLAMARCA : Around the year 200 BC, the Central Coast was the home of several social groups, who shared the same culture, language and beliefs, forming small political units not cohesive among them. Today the archaeological evidence of public architecture of these groups is scarce. Small pyramids associated to settlements are mentioned, in other cases, the existence of stone platforms associated to courtyards. In the Rímac River lower valley a rare example of public building is the Huallamarca pyramid, built based on small handmade irregularly shaped adobes.
After 200AC. one of these cultural groups imposed forming a cultural unit that integrated several valleys, this is Lima culture. From that time, Huallamarca was abandoned until become cemetery hosting burials and mummies of the Lima and Yshmay cultures. When the Incas arrived to the Rimac valley (1470), the Señorio Yshmay was conquered and became inyo the province of Pachacamac. At that time, on the east side of the first platform of the archaeological site, enclosures, courtyards, kitchen and storage areas were built.
“Why is this dog here?” I asked. The guide said. We call him the professor of archaeology, who live in here and is investigating ruins every day. “I see! He seems to be wiser than my son.” I muttered.
