_Panorama_ reported that the building located in the Sanctuary of Pachacámac is on land where there are still archaeological remains. The *Peruvian National Museum of Archaelogy (MUNA)* is a mega project that’s located in the heart of one of the largest and most important archaeological sites of Peru: the *Sanctuary of Pachacámac*. This area was declared intangible and had lacked sufficient investigation although it preserves vestiges of past Peruvians.

This was brought to light by a report of _Panorama_, denouncing the government of *Ollanta Humala* that has decided to carry forth with this work, costing 406 million soles in an area of 75,000 square meters. It includes seven floors (three of which are underground) as well as basements with restaurants, services and parking.

According to the report, the construction of the Pachacámac Museum has left an enormous sinkhole in the area.

In February, the *Ministry of Culture* debuted the complex modern museum. It would be inserted into the archaeological site without damaging it. There was already a museum, but the construction of this new museum was encouraged, in the same area where the ancient Peruvians worshiped the god Pachacámac.
