A #Trujillo #vacation will invite you to #explore the ancient ruins of lost civilizations which dot the surrounding desert coast. Some 2,000 years ago, the Moche people and later the Chimú, managed to cultivate the arid Moche Valley and build thriving cities such as Chan Chan, made entirely from adobe bricks.
These pre-Columbian civilizations also created the mighty Temple of the Sun and the Temple of the Moon, wove reed fishing boats and dug canals for irrigation.
The museum in the coastal site of El Brujo contains a tattooed mummy of a warrior leader or priestess, who was dubbed the Lady of Cao. Find out more about these ancient cultures in Trujillo’s Archaeological Museum. Then, admire the region’s pure-bred Paso Horses during a Marinera show with costumed dancers. End your stay with a visit to the Cathedral and Freedom Monument on Plaza de Armas in the city’s picturesque Historic Centre.
For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.
