Discover the old civilization of CaralBOOK NOW
Set out from Lima on a private day-long trip to Caral, an UNESCO World Heritage Site that is also the ancient-most city in the New World. Accompany your expert guide on a tour of these incredible ruins, wandering among its sunken plazas and terraced pyramids. Learn about the history of this ancient settlement as you view remaining artifacts like bits of broken jewelry and burial relics.
After complimentary pickup from your hotel in Lima, you’ll be driven north 115 miles (185 km) to the ancient ruins of Caral, located in the Supe Valley. Caral spans more than 150 acres (60 hectares) and is considered to be the oldest place of civilization in the Americas. At the ancient city, you'll see six terraced pyramids that are thought to have been the main center of town. Surrounding the pyramids sit many residential structures and sunken plazas. Get a glimpse into how the ancient people of Caral lived as you admire many artifacts and dwellings, including pieces of textile, necklaces, flutes made from animal bones, reed and woven bags, ceremonial burial relics and structures made from adobe and stone. You’ll also see evidence of agricultural practices and elaborate religious ceremonies, as well as a design carved into the earth called Chupacigaro, which was used to measure the movements of the stars. After exploring the ruins, you'll have time to get lunch at a local restaurant (own expense) before heading back to your hotel in Lima.
