The pre-Columbian adobe-and-clay pyramid can't compare with Machu Picchu and Cuzco, but Huaca Pucllana’s location—in the middle of Miraflores’s modern cityscape—has a surreal appeal. Tour guides explain the history of the ceremonial site inhabited by the Lima culture between A.D. 200 and 700. Make sure to visit the museum, which houses ceramics, textiles, and tools unearthed by archeologists. A nighttime visit feels romantic, with its dim lighting—you can also book a table for dinner at the acclaimed on-site restaurant.
