OVERVIEW

Overview

Located in the north of the country, the city of Trujillo was the center of power of the Moche and Chimú cultures. Its historic center is full of buildings from the vice regal era, whose main distinguishing feature is latticework in the shape of a lace, and within walking distance is the largest mud city in the pre-Hispanic world: Chan Chan. On the other hand, Chiclayo offers a trip through the history, gastronomy and natural landscapes of Peru. In this city the most important archaeological monuments of recent years have been found, belonging to the Moche, Chimú and Lambayeque or Sicán cultures.
