What to do and see in Trujillo, La Libertad Region: The Best Historic Sites

June 11, 2021 Franklyn Hardiman

Trujillo is a lively intersection of ancient culture and modern arts. See ancient ruins at the Chan Chan archaeological site and be awed by the Moche Huaca del Sol y la Luna (temples of the sun and moon.). The multicolored Tunnel of Wishes on the Paseo de Aguas is a fabulous place for people-watching. Locally brewed corn beer is worth a try. If you’re a nightlife lover, pace yourself—bars and clubs get going late, and then go all night.

Chan Chan

This archaeological zone, an excellent example of pre-Colombian America, once served as the capital of the Chimu Kingdom, which reached the height of its power in the 15th century before falling under the Incas.

Ancient ruins uncovered in Peru and very interesting. Unfortunately the government does not have the money to carry on with the excavation of these sites but that have great value

Museo Huacas de Moche

The Moche Route follows the most important cultures that settled in Northern Peru between the years 100 and 900 A.D. Important archaeological finds, such as the discovery of the lavish tomb of the Lord of Sipan, the Lady of Cao mummy and the mural paintings in the El Brujo Archaeological Complex, display the splendour of one of the most creative and successful cultures of the pre-Hispanic world.
