Tour to Peru: Trujillo and Chiclayo, Archeological Treasures

ABOUT TRUJILLO AND CHICLAYO

Trujillo is a city in north-western Peru known as the ‘Capital of the everlasting Spring” due to its sun soaked weather. It is known for its unique iron wrought architecture, and its ancient mud based architecture.  Two UNESCO World Heritage archaeological sites make this city a must see on a tour of Peru. Chan Chan is the largest mud city in the world and the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon are the largest made in the ‘adobe’ mud style.

Chiclayo is a city famous for the Northern Wari ruins, an entire prehistoric city covering an area of over 3 miles, which include the stunning Valley of the Pyramids.
