The 5000-year-old City of Caral is located 182 km north of Lima in the Supe Valley; is considered the oldest civilization of America, almost as old as Egypt, Mesopotamia, India and China. The City of Caral is formed by a group of pyramids, which depict the large artistic, technological and scientific advances that they achieved, surprising development considering the total isolation they lived in and compared to the cultural exchange of the cultures in the old world.
