The pyramid was built in seven staggered platforms. There were two sections separated by a wall. One section was the administrative center while the other had deep pits where offerings of marine life were made.
The pyramid and walls were constructed using handmade adobe and clay bricks. In some of the bricks, it’s possible to see original fingerprints of the builders.
At the site entrance, there’s a museum explaining the history, construction, and use of the site. Along the path, there are statues demonstrating how the bricks were made and how the site was used.
In the back, there is a small zoo with guinea pigs, llamas, and alpacas.
