A visit to an archaeological site in the process of extinction, in search of a general view of its architecture. The Huaca Catalina Huanca archaeological site (200 BC - 600 AD) in Lima, is formed by a central pyramid in a staggered way, that was part of a ceremonial center. The protected site is located within the land of a mining company. As the archaeological complex is protected, the mining activity has carved an artificial plateau around the archeological complex. One of the few images of the current state of the site was taken by the archaeologist Lizardo Tavera in 2008, uploading a photo to Panoramio with the quote: "The site you see in the photo may no longer exist".
