Don’t miss a Colourful experience visiting the North of Peru: Trujillo and Chiclayo.

Trujillo city is the capital of La Libertad department. It is located at the Peruvian northwest and is the third most important city of the country. Founded in 1534 by Miguel de Estete, it was the provisional capital of Peru during its independence. Trujillo is known as the “City of Everlasting Spring” because its privileged weather throughout the year.

Like Chiclayo, Trujillo is territory of the Mochica culture, so we can find archaeological remains of this culture such as the Sun and Moon Temples, Chanchan and Dragon’s Temple there.

Chiclayo city is the capital of the Lambayeque department located in the northwest of Peru.

The city was founded in 1720 as “Santa María de los Valles de Chiclayo” by decree of the President José de la Mar. In 1835, the city was awarded the “Heroic City”. It is currently known as the “Friendship´s Capital” because of its charming people.

Lambayeque was the Mochica culture’s birthplace which possibly decayed because of a devastating “El Niño” phenomenon. Due to its geographical location, it also had influence of civilizations from Cajamarca, therefore, we will find remains of the Lord of Sipan, ancient Mochica ruler of the III century.

Exploring Trujillo and Chiclayo on this tour you will know more about the pre-inca cultures.

Even though water is potable in most cities, it is advisable to drink bottled water to avoid any problems.
