It is a huge archaeological site containing pre-Inca and Inca temples (entrance fee 6 Soles). This was one of the major pilgrimage sites in South America, in the years 500-1,500. The temples are constructed from adobe and are not very well preserved. There are three ramp pyramids and a temple of the sun (the only temple which may be accessed). Due to the fragile nature of the ruins and vandalism they may only be seen from a road. The on-site museum contains a variety of artifacts including ceramics, wood carvings, textiles and Inca quipus. From Miraflores, take a colectivo to 'Puente Primavera'. From there, take a 'San Bartolo' colectivo to Lurin (2.50 Soles). Get off just past the Cementerio Parque Del Recuerdo or tell the conductor that you want to get off at the ruinas de Pachacámac. Many bike tour companies offer tours of Pachacámac.
