After 100 years later the pieces that were take in 1911 to the Yale University by Hiram Bingham were brought back to Peru. During 2 weeks the exhibition took place at the President's Palace downtown Lima. About 100 pieces were shown and had a visit of almost 30,000 persons, the entry was free.

Casma, located north of Lima, has great places to see and it has some important pre-inca archaeological sights.

Sechin, a pre-inca culture that belongs to the Early Formative (2000 to 1000 B.C.), more known as the great warriors of the Casma Valley. The site is composed by 5 buildings, a lithic gallery and a sunken square. Decorated by motifs representing the human drama of the war, being a unique site in Peru.

Chanquillo, the oldest solar observatory in America. Built more than 2,000 years ago, in the coastal area of Peru. The observatory is formed by thirteen on-line lifted towers, from north to south on the summit of Mount Chanquillo that indicated the annual displacement of the Sun, accurately, as well as the solstices and the equinoxes. Also, it contains two artificial points of observation separated by 200 meters with a kind of a fortress surrounded by three concentric rings.
Before these investigations Chanquillo was considered a fortress with eminently military functions and it was related with the Mochica Culture of the First Regional Development. (200-600. C.).
