The city ​​of Lima, the gastronomic capital

All About Lima

Civilization in the ancient City ​​of Lima developed in early 100BC to 650BC.

During the early period of Pre-Incan Culture in coastal Peru, the middle group of rivers brought different groups of people from all along the coast who were looking for establishment. Evidence of a new era of religion, traditions, and economy was found after the discovery of the oldest civilization near Lima called Caral.

Caral is the most ancient Bargain Market in the world because archeologists and historians found the fiber of Alpaca that came from the Andes of South America and fiber of different plants and trees from the Amazon. These findings led them to believe it was once a place to trade and bargain goods from all over South America. Looking for more information and after years of excavations, the most recent discoveries were found in the modern City of Lima, the pyramids of Huaca Pucllana, and the Pachacamac. Here archaeologists found evidence of the novelty and religious human offerings described on textiles with different symbols and meanings of status and wealth along with mummies found wrapped in textiles evidencing the prosperity of a culture.

Potteries were discovered that expressed the traditions and customs with zoomorphic and anthropomorphic expressions of a developed culture and religions with human sacrifices which was common in the early Andean cultures. People of Lima also participated in sacrifices that were made to the Gods to protect the city from different disasters and even for prosperity. All the evidence that was discovered is now found in the most important Museums of Lima, The National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology, and History of Peru, and the Gold Museum of Peru and Arms of the World. Other parts of the history are in the Larco Museum Treasure of Ancient Peru.

Larco Museum has the most important evidence from different cultures from all over Peru.
