Full DayLima - Ancient City of Caral

Our morning drive takes us from Lima toward the Supe Valley. At the ancient archeological site of Caral, we’ll explore one of Peru’s most important ruins packed with a long and fascinating history. This UNESCO world heritage covers an area of around 60 hectares and seems to be first inhabited between 2 600 BCE and 2 000 BCE which gives it the title of the oldest city in the Americas.

Set off with your Guide and explore the temples, plazas, and recent discoveries. Studies had found that Caral was developed along with the ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt civilizations about 5 000 years ago. Although the ruins were discovered in 1948, recent excavations of Caral have revealed an elaborate complex of temples, sunken plazas, and some of the largest terraced pyramids in the world, leading archeologists to ponder the possibility of Caral being the fabled Mother City of ancient civilizations. Now open to the public, the site has garnered acclaim for its beautifully preserved ruins and intriguing collection of artifacts, which include a quipu (a unique knot system used by ancient Andean civilizations) and a number of musical instruments fashioned from animal bones, but significantly there is no trace of warfare or weaponry.
