Caption: Pyramid at Caral. Caral is a sacred city located in Peru. This is the smallest pyramid on the upper side of the city. Archaeologists climbing on it show the scale of the structure. The foothills of the Andes are seen in the background. Caral, located in Peru's coastal desert region, was one of the centres of the Caral Supe civilisation, a pre-Hispanic culture dating from the period 3000- 1600 BC. The site was discovered in 1905, but it was not until 2001 that it was realised that it was up to 5000 years old, making it the earliest known South American civilisation. The Caral site includes the remains of pyramids, temples, houses, and an amphitheatre.
