What would Lima be without its ancient cultures? You will find them everywhere, even if large parts of the buildings have disappeared today in the streets of the capital. The Victoria can be maintained in this respect, in the center of the district is the Huaca Santa Catalina. It consists of a stepped pyramid and an access ramp. The complex has been used by different cultures over the centuries, including the Ichma, the last remodeling of the Inca era. The plane of the pyramid is almost square. In the past, the Huaca was both an administrative center and a religious center, as evidenced by the altar preserved to this day.
There is also a museum on the site, where mainly ceramics and textiles found on the site are exhibited. If you like cultural events such as concerts and dance shows, Huaca Santa Catalina is the place to be. Especially at night, the Huaca is a beautiful place, when the walls are softly lit. It is worth keeping an eye on the calendar of events. For football fans among you: in La Victoria you can find the Alejandro Villanueva Stadium, the stadium that houses the Alianza Lima football club. In addition, the district is adjacent to the National Stadium of Peru, National Stadium Limas.
