Huaca Wallamarka

Interesting
The huaca Wallamarka is one of the many pyramids built out of unbaked clay bricks in the valley of the Río Rímac. Both a sanctuary and a necropolis, after several years of excavation work in the mid-20C, several hundred mummies were discovered, together with a host of artefacts, including jewellery and shrouds, which are exhibited in the adjacent museum. The now restored huaca is an astonishing sight amidst the modern buildings of the Miraflores neighbourhood.
