Trujillo and Chiclayo
Two important towns located in the north of Perú which homes many important pre-inca archaeological remains of Chimu and Moche culture.
Trujillo is a moderately large city in Northwestern Peru, very close to the Pacific Coast; due to its geographic location it is also known for its seafood and the beaches of its famous surf and beach resort Huanchaco, where you will appreciate the well-known “Caballito de Totora” or reed boats.
Chiclayo is one of the four more populated towns of Peru. Chiclayo and surrounding region are probably most well known for their archaeological sites and treasures, such as Sipan, Túcume, Batán Grande and Huaca Rajada.
The most significant of these archeological discoveries is the tomb of the Señor de Sipán,
in which the amount of treasure found there rivals that found in the tomb of King Tut.
