One of the most memorable towns I’ve been to. So amazing. (See part 1 HERE)
This was such a neat place to see right in the center of Lima, Miraflores. “possibly from Quechua wak’a a local shrine to a protector deity, a sacred place, sacred, pukllana game” #wiki. It’s very well preserved but there is also work being done to restore parts of the pyramid that do need repaired. Pre-Inca temple approx 400 AD, made of millions of clay/adobe bricks. There is a small portion of the grounds dedicated to a garden and pens for a few resident chickens, guinea pigs and of course llamas and alpacas.
This historic Lombard town at the base of the Bergamo Foothills, but raising above Bergamo’s Citta Bassa, was the highlight of my time in northern Italy. Though we spent just the one evening and night, this town’s charm will always hold a special place in my heart.
