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.

La muestra del Museo Cao recrea una larga secuencia de desarrollos culturales en el Complejo Arqueológico El Brujo a lo largo de más de 14 mil años de ocupación humana ininterrumpida. Los objetos que la integran, a pesar de provenir de diferentes épocas, son todos originarios de este lugar. Más allá de acumular restos arqueológicos, el museo propone transmitir las historias que cada pieza contiene, brindando así nuevas herramientas para comprender cómo pudo ser la vida de las grandes culturas que ocuparon la costa norte del Perú. Luego de 20 años de investigación, el Museo Cao preserva y difunde los mensajes del pasado, buscando una mejor comprensión de ellos en el futuro.
Visited with small group of Americans spending 3 days concentrating on Moche civilization. This site is a must see. The story of the Lady of Cao or La Senora of Cao is still being written with new scientific work just this month (July 2017). Site...MoreThank you for your visit!

Te invitamos a conocer uno de los lugares más emblemáticos de la costa norte del Perú: el Complejo Arqueológico El Brujo. Este lugar, ocupado a lo largo de 14 mil años por distintas culturas, fue uno de los escenarios del poder de los Mochicas (100 – 600 D.C.). Los Moche destacaron por su fina cerámica, por su arquitectura artísticamente decorada con relieves, y por su delicado arte metálico. En este espacio se descubrió la tumba de la Señora de Cao, quien por la riqueza de los objetos que la acompañaban y por lo extraordinario de su enterramiento, es reconocida como una importante lideresa del antiguo Perú.
This is a small site, but filled with history and some stunning colors. Also, the Museo Cao is worth the visit. Her burial site was found here and the artifacts are in the museum, as are a wealth of others from the site.¡Thank you for your visit!

Our ship stopped in Salaverry, and it was about a 30 minute taxi ride to get here... then waiting maybe 15 minutes for the English tour to start, then maybe a 45 minute tour. Very worthwhile. Some people won't be able to navigate the steps to get there, but once there, it's not too difficult.

PERUVIAN PASO HORSE AND MARINERA NORTENA.... the best and only show in Peru...MORE THEN 40 MINUTES OF SHOW!!! we are located in the corner of Via Evitamiento km567 and Calle "El Palmar"..right beside Tecsup
This was a fantastic show for anyone who loves/likes/has an interest in horses. The place is very basic but there was no need for anything that was not there. It was quite a short show but you learnt a lot about the horses and the local dances. It was great to see the dancers dance with horses. The guys who own/run it were very kind and helpful. They booked us a taxi as it is quite far out from the town. It was a shame that there were only 3 paying audience there (us included) as the show deserves a much bigger audience but the performers and horses performed as if it was a full house. There are 2 shows a day so maybe the later one was busier and it was midweek.

Another not to be missed site in the Trujillo area. It is a UNESCO space. Archaeologists still working, but beautiful carvings exposed. This pre-Inca Moche cultural site has quite a bit of restoration....to much, but was done when this was in vogue.

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.
Absolutely worth a visit. 10sol per person. Had guide first time, second time had leaflet bought just before entering for 5soles. Included what you needed to know. Went early at 9am and then you have the whole place for yourself and can take nice pictures.
Unfortunately the burial site is closed for renovations at the moment

An enjoyable square to walk around for a few hours.
Scenic & colorful architecture & landscape.
Lovely Cathedral with a gorgeous painted ceiling.
Fountain in the middle of the square.
Easy to waist a couple of hours in this area & well worth the effort to do so.

After passing by this gorgeous church numerous times my first few days in Trujillo I finally entered on a Monday afternoon. The church was open and you can visit for free. Inside the church there are beautiful paintings and beautiful murals on the ceiling.
I spent a short 15 minutes taking photos, but it is one of the most gorgeous buildings in town. This is a must visit if you are in Trujillo.

This is a small site....very small compared to Chan Chan. You can easily visit this in less than an hour. What's interesting here are the rainbow motifs (thus the Arco Iris name).
With all the other sites between Trujillo and Chiclayo, this one wouldn't be high on the list. But if you're in the area, it's interesting to stop by.

A lovely and grand Colonial mansion with beautiful courtyards. Free admission, and currently owned by a bank (I think). A nice quick diversion to imagine a way of life in times gone by.
