Trujillo / Chiclayo - Moche route

Why travel?

In the north of Peru, the regions of Trujillo and Chiclayo feature a geographic mix of coastline, desert, and mountain highlands. Above all, these cities are renowned as the birthplace of civilizations that pre-date the Inca Empire by several centuries. The ancient archaeological treasures of Chiclayo & Trujillo make these cities top destinations for Peru travel. 

Mighty cultures including the Moche, Sipan, Sican, and Chimu all reigned successively within this territory, and pyramids, tombs, and even entire cities remain behind as evidence of their advanced technologies. For archaeology lovers who are planning trips to Peru, these cities are ideal additions to a travel itinerary.

Trujillo, graced by perpetual sunshine, is known as the City of Eternal Spring. Combined with the easygoing attitude of its residents, rich cultural traditions, and a festive atmosphere, Trujillo is one of the most attractive northern cities in Peru. Spanish colonial influences are evident in the look and feel of the downtown area, which includes the Cathedral, the Archbishop’s Palace, the monastery of El Carmen, and the many colonial-style houses. Archaeological sites include Chan Chan and El Brujo.

Head four hours north for a tour of Chiclayo, known as the cradle of the Moche civilization, and 5th largest city in Peru. Archaeological and historical museums abound, including the Bruning Museum and the famous royal tombs of the Lord of Sipán, an amazing site discovered in 1987.
