Drive 30 minutes south-east of Lima to visit the Pachacamac Pilgrimage Centre. Built around 700 A.D. as a temple for the worship of the sun god, Pachacamac, it housed an oracle that is believed to be one of the main pilgrimage centres in pre-Columbian Peru, and on a par with Cusco. Pilgrims flocked here from far away to worship Pachacamac, who was believed to be the creator of the world and its creatures. The site includes palaces, plazas and temples that have been painstakingly restored. The on-site museum has a collection of local relics. Conclude the tour with a visit to the Larco Museum, housed in an 18th century colonial mansion that hosts the most extensive collection of pre-Columbian art in Peru. It contains fine examples of textile work, one of which has a world record-breaking 398 threads per inch, as well as the tools ancient Peruvians used to produce metals, huaco ceramics and gold and silver pieces with semiprecious stones.
The Real Felipe, the most imposing of all the fortresses built by the Spanish in their American colonies, is located in Callao, Peru's principal port. It was constructed from 1747 as a defence against pirate attacks from corsairs who knew very well that Spanish galleons, loaded with Inca gold, departed from here. The fortress is currently the seat of the Peruvian Army Museum. The Real Felipe has a true aura of history, and the military authorities therefore decided that the location was an ideal place to exhibit the army's different aspects during the past, and from Inca times onward.
