A new Exhibition at Parque de las Leyendas about pre-Hispanic Life in Lima

The Parque de las Leyendas not only houses Lima's zoo, a botanical garden and recreation areas; actually here you find 54 archaeological monuments of Lima's most extensive ancient city. The pre-Hispanic town of Maranga was continuously occupied by different cultures for over 2000 years and contained impressive buildings, numerous pyramids, palaces, temples and administrative centers. Also an ancient wall, roads, residential areas, water reservoirs and irrigation channels were part of the complex.

10 years of extensive archaeological excavations at the "Legends Park" with countless unearthed artifacts left the archaeologists with a better understanding of the lifestyle and traditions of Maranga's ancient inhabitants. To show the amazing results of the intensive research done and promote the cultural heritage of Peru's pre-Hispanic cultures, the Parque de las Leyendas presents the exhibition "Maranga – 2000 years of shared stories".

The exhibition follows a modern and interactive concept. Visitors not only can admire ceramics, textiles, musical instruments, large clay pots or an urn specially prepared to show one of the 100 dogs found at huaca 33 last year, but also get involved by building a foundation or a wall with mud bricks like the ancient inhabitants did.

The inauguration of the exhibition takes place this Thursday, September 18th at 07.00 pm at the Ernst W. Middendorf Museum inside Parque de las Leyendas, Av. Las Leyendas 580 - 586 in San Miguel. From Friday on the exhibition can be visited from 10.00 am to 05.00 pm.
