Tour to Caral from Lima - walking tour
This is the OLDEST known city in the Americas. Developed simultaneously with the ancient cultures of Mesopotamia and Egypt about 5000 years ago.
The archeological site of Caral is among Peru?s most impressive ruins and makes a popular day trip from nearby Lima. The UNESCO World Heritage listed site covers an area of around 60 hectares in the arid Supe Valley and was first inhabited between 2600 BCE and 2000 BCE.
Although initially discovered back in 1948, recent excavations of Caral revealed an elaborate complex of temples, sunken plazas and some of the largest terraced pyramids in the world, leading archeologists to ponder the chance 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 artefacts, which include a quipu (a unique knot system used by ancient Andean civilizations) and a number of musical instruments fashioned from animal bones, but definitely, no trace of warfare or weaponry.
