The ruins were a Pre-Inca and Inca archaeological construction which also was the main ceremonial center to worship the God Pachacámac. Pachacámac was the creator of life and the universe. The main parts of the ruins are the "Templo Pintado" (colored temple) and the "Templo Viejo" (old temple). Specialists think that Pachacamac was inhabited between the years 200 and 1533.

After the Inca conquest the "Templo del Inti" (Temple of Sun) and an "acllahuasi" (house prepared for the chosen girls) were built. The Temple of Inti also has a great terrace with a view of the sea.

The conservation of this location and its restoration offer a glimpse into the history and the culture of the area.
